Basket Room has built long established relationships with weaving groups in several rural corners of Africa, and the skilled craftswomen in this particular women’s weaving group are brilliant at producing these repeat design baskets in a kaleidoscope of stunning colour block combinations.  The women behind our colour block baskets have woven from a young age: this careful, traditional craft is passed along the female line, from grandmothers to mothers to daughters. Sisal grass is sourced ready-rolled and hand-dyed in large vats before a traditional twining method is used to produce each handwoven basket. Where once these women used to have to travel to Nairobi to sell their woven baskets, today The Basket Room places regular and fairly-paid orders with this group, and completed baskets are stored in purpose-built mud huts before being shipped by container to the UK
