JIONI DUSKY PINK COLOUR BLOCK BASKET By The Basket Room
Dreamy dusky pink and natural colour blocking make these pretty storage baskets the ideal addition to any dressing table, bathroom or nursery. Available in three handy sizes, our JIONI woven baskets are also ideal planters and flower pots.
Our coloured baskets are hand made by a small Kenyan weaving cooperative of forty ladies, with a dedicated dye manager appointed to oversee colour consistency and quality. We keep this highly skilled collective busy with regular orders of this popular style, so sisal grass is sourced ready-rolled when orders come in. This local grass is hand-dyed in large vats and hung out to dry before a traditional twining method is used – a meticulous skill that most weavers have known from a young age.
Buying these blocked colour baskets actively supports the weavers in supporting their families through the perilous dry seasons, where subsistence farming - their main source of revenue – can suffer. We are proud to empower women with the flexibility that basket weaving offers, as well as engaging in a truly fair trade. Each woven basket is supplied with a thank you card from this Kenyan weaving cooperative.
