We think UMRI would look divine on your dining table. This bread basket is hand woven in Kenya from hand-dyed sisal grass. Featuring a bold maroon and blue stripe against a natural, undyed base, this ethical woven basket brings a burst of Kenyan colour to mealtimes.

The Basket Room works with a Community Based Organisation in Kenya to produce these woven bread baskets. This weaving collective produces unique woven bread baskets using their own designs and colourways, so each one is unique: made once and sold once. 

Making and selling baskets within the protection of a cooperative empowers these female weavers to support themselves and their families through the dry seasons, when farming fails to make ends meet. Weavers are paid a wage for each woven bread basket they produce, and can work to their own schedules. Each unique woven basket comes with a little information about the cooperative who made yours - meet the weavers from this region HERE.
