A beautiful basket in a green and natural colourway. This Fair Trade basket is handwoven in Kenya using locally sourced Sisal.  Available in 3 different sizes, these baskets are perfect for all your storage needs around the home. Ideal in a baby’s nursery where they can be used for toy storage as well as all the usual baby supplies and bits and bobs.  Or how about displaying the small basket up on a shelf with a beautiful trailing plant in it.  Pop a lush ‘Fiddle Leaf’ plant in the large basket for a stylish addition to any room in the house.  It’s easy to transform a space with the addition of a beautifully handwoven basket.

Your purchase actively supports the women who weave them and helps them to provide for a more economically independent way of life.  Your support is very much appreciated and valued.

Description

These beautiful colour block baskets have been handwoven in Kenya by a small group of women who are part of a weaving cooperative.  The cooperative provides regular work and income for around 40 women. Many of the women come from farming families and communities, where income is fleeting and very inconsistent due to drought, as well as crop failures.  Through their employment they are able to provide for their families while at the same time sharing their wonderful, traditional craft with the rest of the world.

All of the baskets are handmade from start to finish meaning that the basket you purchase is truly individual and a one-off.  When you receive your basket you will notice a ‘Thank You” card attached to it, from the cooperative. A wonderful way to feel the connection between original maker and final owner.
