These colour block baskets come in three handy sizes and sport broad bands of soft green against cheering langoustine red. The baskets can be used as small planters and desk tidies, plus they’re great for storing jewellery, stationery, gloves and slippers, knitting, remote controls, toys and blankets.
All these baskets are handwoven by a small collective of female weavers living near the Masinga Dam in Kenya – one of seven dams on the River Tana. Their chairlady started managing basket production in 1993, and today she leads several groups with specific production roles from twisting to dyeing and weaving sisal fibres.
Backing all the values, The Basket Room's work with weaving cooperatives empowers women to support their families with a flexible income in the dry seasons, where subsistence farming often fails to meet the needs of the family. When you take home one of these woven baskets you actively support these weavers and their families, supporting our commitment to dignified working conditions. You can meet the weavers HERE.
