KETI: Sand & Dusty Pink Duo Colour Block Woven Basket
Designed exclusively by The Basket Room, the KETI duo colour block baskets feature a broad band of soft pink suspended above a sandy sisal base. Produced in three sizes, these beautiful pink baskets can be used as indoor planters or flower pots, and can be used for storing all sort of household bits and bobs: slippers and blankets, remotes and cables, knitting, soft toys – the list is endless.
These baskets are handwoven by a small collective of female weavers living near the Masinga Dam in Kenya – one of seven dams on the River Tana. Their chairlady started managing basket production in 1993, and today she leads several groups with specific production roles from twisting to dyeing and weaving sisal fibres.
Backing all the values of fair trade, the Basket Room works with weaving cooperatives to empower women to support their families with a flexible income in the dry seasons, where subsistence farming often fails to meet the needs of the family. When you take home one of our woven baskets you actively support these weavers and their families, supporting our commitment to dignified working conditions.
