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.

Keep dry and out of direct sunlight as colours will fade. If basket does get wet, dry immediately.
This is how all trade should be. A beautiful product purchased knowing a fair wage is paid to the artisans at the ground level … and not just fattening the pockets of western corporates. Well done!
Beautiful, handy baskets.
Really love these baskets. They are so well made and look so beautiful. Highly recommend.
I bought this basket as a pot plant cover and I ab-so-lutely love it. Up close it has a beautiful texture and is strong and well-woven, I’m about to go back and purchase more for storage in different sizes.
Beautiful basket. Well made and fantastic quality. Perfect size. Highly recommend. Love it. :O)
