A playful rainbow motif designed by illustrator Jacqueline Colley adorns this ethically hand-woven sisal basket, hand embroidered by Nduta, an exceptionally talented artist working in Nairobi.
These ethical baskets make delightful children’s storage and will also appeal to all of those with a playful approach to interiors. Use as desk tidies and planters, on bedside tables and coffee tables - or for knitting, crafting, toys, muslins or toiletries.
Not just practical and on-trend, these baskets also serve a fundamental purpose for their Kenyan makers. The weavers, taught by their own mothers and grandmothers, make a vital secondary income fulfilling orders from The Basket Room. In times of unpredictable drought, flexible work like weaving enables these women - who otherwise rely solely on farming income - to better support their families throughout the seasons.
