Product Description:

An African-inspired accent that makes a meaningful impact, one vibrant strand at a time.

This sustainably handcrafted storage basket brings a touch of traditional Kenyan artistry to your contemporary home. Handwoven from natural sisal fibres by female artisans, it’s an eco-friendly way to stash everything from toys and linens to craft supplies.

The maroon stripe lends a pop of colour and visual interest to its rustic yet refined design. More than just a place to store odds and ends, this basket represents an opportunity to support vulnerable communities and preserve age-old handicrafts.

Once you see its expert weave and feel the texture of the sisal, you’ll understand why these baskets have been prized for generations. Decorative yet durable, this basket effortlessly holds its own as a planter, hamper or catchall while empowering its makers.

These maroon stripe storage baskets are woven from sustainable sisal and are a beautiful creamy-white with a maroon railway pattern running through the middle. They have been woven by hand by a small women’s group in the Kasigau – which is located in an “elephant corridor” that connects the Tsavo West National Park with the Tsavo East National Park.

*As all baskets are handmade, please expect some differences in sizing and patterns. 

Size
Small – 15 x 15cm

Care Instructions:

  • Our baskets are sturdy, strong, and flexible, made to withstand constant use. If properly cared for, your basket will live a long life.

  • Dust your woven basket on a regular basis, wiping with a damp cloth if necessary. No other cleaning should be necessary.

  • Changes in temperature and humidity may cause your basket to expand and contract, which may make securing the lid difficult at times. Be patient and wait for the weather to change or remove from areas with high humidity (like bathrooms).
