Advent Calendar Pelagona Door 2 Sisal Baskets Toy Storage

Door 2

Door Number 1 revealed the women behind our sisal basket collection. Today, it is about the amazing products they make. The sisal baskets are super versatile: use them as plant pot covers, to store kitchen utensils, to keep your home office in order or as laundry hampers. What we love most is to use them for children’s toys: made by mothers for other mothers.
The baskets are made from natural sisal. The botanical name is Agave sisalana and the plant originally comes from Mexico. The sisal for our baskets is grown in Kenya where our talented artisan partners are based.
Basket weaving has become an important way of income for the women as agriculture has been challenged by climate change. The income through the weaving allows the women financial freedom and, hence, less dependency on their husbands and/or extended communities or relatives. Furthermore, meeting for weaving reaffirms their social interactions and strengthens their community. It allows them to discuss the issues they face with other women and offer advice for each other.
