Description

Feathered Nest Homewares is very proud to stock ‘The Basket Room’ products.  Not only are their products stylish and practical but they are also very much an ethical brand. ‘The Basket Room’ make it their aim to “create access to market for these talented weavers, to provide them with a sustainable livelihood and the recognition they deserve.” The Tazama Sisal Bag is a great example of the beautiful products created by the weavers. By using a very traditional skill, they bring contemporary design to life.

One of only 45 women produced this unique bag in the rural Eastern Region of Kenya.  The entire process is done by hand, starting with the harvesting of the sisal which is then hand-rolled before being dyed naturally using different coloured vegetation in boiling water.

Weaving has become an essential alternative income for these Kenyan weavers, as subsistence farming can be a very unreliable source of income, especially during the periods of drought.
