WHO MADE MY BASKET - Handmade by a group of women weavers that we have brought together in a remote rural village in Kenya. Due to the arid and dry environment the women rely on weaving before the rainy season. With this regular income they can ensure good health, kids’ education and better living for their families. Working directly with the weavers ensures fair trade and sustainability as there is fewer people involved in the supply chain.

 

When a woman earns it goes back to the community - Purchase this basket to support our weavers.

Each basket is unique in a way.

  • CARE INSTRUCTIONS - We ship this basket folded:

    Upon reception of your basket -  Don’t panic in case it is out of shape. All our sisal baskets can be remoulded by spraying  (not the water drops, only spray) a bit of water on the folded areas and moulding it. You may wish to do this twice or just stuff the basket with a towel or a pot to shape it back. Watch a video

    Using it as a planter basket -  Ensure that you place a saucer or a plastic at the bottom of the basket before inserting your plant pot as water can damage your basket.

    Always aim keep your basket dry. These baskets can go in the bathroom, but just ensure that it is not by the bath or the shower as they can get damp due to its natural materials.

    If it get’s wet, ensure you dry it as soon as possible on a radiator or under the sun for a day

    Try to keep it away from direct sunlight as this may deteriorate the basket colours over the time though this may give a rustic look to your basket.
