Description

Made from natural materials by female artisans in Kenya 

I always wanted baskets like these and I am so glad that this collaboration worked out: our beautiful sisal baskets where made by the Mulikyondo Weavers, a female artisan initiative in Kenya.

Handmade Sisal Baskets Kenyan Weavers

These hand-woven baskets are pretty and versatile – I mix various colours, sizes and patterns and use them as laundry hampers or storage for blankets and pillows. You can also use it to store stuffed toys of your little ones.

All the items are handmade mostly by mothers and daughters. 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.

Your purchase empowers female artisans and helps to keep this beautiful art alive.

All items are handmade and unique – therefore, slight variations may occur.
