The craftswomen behind these round place mats all learned to weave from their mothers and grandmothers, and practise this income-generating craft within a small weaving group in rural Kenya. We visit these women as often as we can, and have built a strong bond with the weavers and their chairlady, Madam Dorcas over the years. Where once these weavers would undertake the long journey to Nairobi to sell their work at markets, The Basket Room now places regular orders with them, enabling these women to work safely and efficiently from home. 

Much of basket production takes place during Kenya’s dry seasons, since most of these weavers are from farming communities who rely on farming (and rainfall) to feed, support and clothe their families. When farming slows down, weaving work picks up the slack. To buy one of our woven placemats is to support us empowering African craftswomen and protecting this age-old craft.
