A stripy carton overflowing with popcorn, hand embroidered in colourful yarn, adorns this ethically hand-woven sisal basket. Woven in rural Kenya and embroidered by a Nairobi based artist named Nduta, this small storage basket can be used all over the home - as a woven planter or desk tidy, or for keeping craft materials, pencils, toiletries or jewellery in.

This playful popcorn design belongs to a growing collection of hand embroidered baskets that British illustrator Jacqueline Colley has designed for The Basket Room: this popcorn basket is brand new for 2023. Nduta has worked on every embroidered collection, and has even trained a small group of women in embroidery to meet demand for these special baskets.  

Woven from natural undyed sisal and sand-dyed sisal, these hand embroidered baskets bring vital work to several groups of Kenyan artisans. The weavers, taught basket weaving by their own mothers and grandmothers, make a safe and reliable secondary income from weaving. In times of drought, flexible work like basket weaving enables these women - who otherwise rely solely on a farming income - to better support their families.
