Yellow Colour Block Woven Basket
Embrace the colour blocking trend with our bright sunflower yellow and natural coloured baskets, hand woven in South Western Kenya. These storage baskets are available in two handy sizes and can be used as flower pots and planters for indoor plants as well as being useful dressing table organisers for jewellery, and stylish desk tidies.
These coloured baskets are produced by a small Kenyan weaving cooperative of around forty members, with a dedicated dye manager who oversees colour quality and consistency. Sisal grass is sourced ready-rolled when regular orders come in from The Basket Room, and is hand-dyed in large vats and hung out to dry before a traditional twining method is used. This is a highly skilled workforce of women who have woven from a young age, having been taught by the family matriarch.
Bringing together all the values of fair trade, our partnership with this cooperative helps women to support their families more comfortably, since subsistence farming alone often fails to meet the family’s needs. Buy one of our woven baskets and you actively support these weavers’ livelihoods, and our commitment to empowering women. Each woven basket is supplied with a thank you card from the weaving cooperative.
