These orange and natural colour block storage baskets are available in three handy sizes and can be used as flower pots and planters for indoor plants, desk tidies and fruit baskets. Turmeric is a trendy colour; an enlivening orange that infuses just a hint of pungency into the palette. Use your handwoven basket in the bathroom for toiletries or loo rolls, or pop yours on your dressing table for keeping jewellery and knick knacks all in one place. Need more inspiration?

Our coloured baskets are produced by a small Kenyan weaving cooperative of around forty members, with a dedicated dye manager who oversees colour quality and consistency. Sisal grass is sourced ready-rolled when orders come in, hand-dyed in large vats of boiling water and hung out to dry before the weaving starts.
Partnership with this Kenyan cooperative helps women to support their families more comfortably, since subsistence farming alone often fails to meet the needs of a family. Buy one of our woven baskets and you actively support these weavers’ livelihoods, and our commitment to empowering women. Each woven basket comes with a thank you card from the weaving cooperative, and you can meet the weavers HERE.
