These baskets are hand woven in rural Kenya by a skilled craftswoman working with unique weave patterns and natural dyes.
The weaving process is highly skilled. Sisal grass is hand stripped using wooden tools and then hand rolled to a very fine twine before being woven using a classic twining technique. The dyes used to create the stunning layers of colour in are 100% natural, and hand-dyed in large vats of boiling water.

For these women’s groups, basket weaving takes place primarily during the dry seasons where crop production dwindles. It is an important portable, income-generating craft which supports rural communities.
