Round Straw Basket Bag
Meet our chic round basket bag. Lovingly hand woven from indigenous palm leaf in rural Kenya, this is the ultimate hand held bag for pavement coffee dates, sun-drenched brunches, and balmy evenings sipping cocktails by the sea. Whether this summer will see you in the souks of Marrakech or on the beaches Ibiza, partying in Dubrovnik or chilling out in Los Angeles, you’ll be making a statement with this beautiful hand held bag.
The artisans who hand-weave these stylish round basket bags work within a large Kenyan weaving cooperative. These democratically-run groups meet weekly to share our the work for inbound basket bag orders and to dispatch completed baskets back to us in Oxfordshire. The weavers, mainly women, are paid a mutually agreed fee per woven basket bag, and are at liberty to choose how many baskets they’d like to work on each week, depending on their own availability and other commitments such as family and farming. Basket weaving takes place largely during the dry seasons when crop production often fails and livestock can suffer.
Our baskets are woven with stories and craft. To carry one of our round basket palm bags is to support us in empowering women through fairly-paid, flexible work.
