ABOUT THE ARTISANS
Living at the base of Mt Kasigau, South East Kenya, basket weavers live in an area that is a stunning and yet vulnerable ecosystem, home to varied and abundant wildlife.
Income from weaving is so important in that it provides a sustainable alternative to environmentally harmful practices like the poaching of elephants, giraffes and other wildlife and destruction of forests for charcoal, timber and farmland, as well as helping the beautiful women there escape poverty in their daily lives.

I ordered an extra large woven basket and I absolutely love it. It’s the perfect size for the storage of cushions and rugs; to put a large pot plant in; or, perfect for the kids toys.
It arrived super fast and the detail in the packaging was next level. The basket arrived flat packaged, but included instructions on how to mould it into shape, which was really easy.
A great small business who I would order from again.
