Description

With fine stripes of dark teal and a contrasting burgundy base, TENDA is a new addition to our collection of wool and sisal totes for 2022, designed exclusively by The Basket Room.  

Handwoven over six days by women working in a weaving group of 500, these yarn and sisal basket bags are 100% Kenyan, from their sisal fibres to their leather straps. All leather used to produce this basket bag’s shoulder straps is a by-product of the food industry, and sewn by women working for a flourishing Nairobi leather workshop. 

Basket weaving is a craft that connects generations of women in Kenya: a skill taught by grandmothers to mothers to daughters which we intend, with your help, to protect and uphold for future generations of weavers. In working on these woven totes, the women in this group are able to support their families with a reliable household income – and work that fits in around domestic work, childcare and farming.

 

Material:  Sisal and Yarn (Synthetic), Leather Straps   

Dimensions: 40cm W X 30cm H approx (width is measured at the widest part of the bag)

Strap Length: 29cm approx

Leather used is a by-product of the food industry.

Please note, as this is a handmade product, dimensions & colour may vary from those shown in the photographs.
