Watermelon Storage Basket

Watermelon Storage Basket

ZS009

Availability: In stock

£36.00
A juicy watermelon takes pride of place on this gorgeous hand-woven storage basket, hand embroidered by Nduta, a talented craftswoman working in Nairobi.

These ethical baskets will delight children and the young-at-heart in equal measure - they’re ideal for nurseries and playrooms, desks, shelves, bedrooms and bathrooms. Use yours as a 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 basket orders. 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.

This beautiful range of embroidered baskets is designed by The Basket Room in collaboration with British illustrator and designer Jacqueline Colley. Woven from natural undyed sisal and sand-dyed sisal.
