Mazao Sisal Basket

Introduce a splash of African style to your interiors with our neon pink and yellow striped baskets. Hand woven from local sisal grass by a skilled craftswoman working within a small cooperative in rural Kenya, the Mazao Sisal Baskets come in three different sizes for use all over the home. These bright baskets make fabulous fruit baskets and desk tidies, and can be used as both small and large planters for all manner of house plants.  Use them to store yarn, blankets, kids toys, the uses are endless.

The craftswomen behind the Mazao Sisal Basket have perfected the age-old art of weaving, a tradition handed down from their mothers and grandmothers, and work within a small, rural weaving cooperative. Where once these weavers would travel regularly to Nairobi to sell their woven baskets, The Basket Room now provides them with regular and fairly-paid orders, and these completed baskets are then stored in purpose-built mud huts. As demand increases, the cooperative continues to thrive and grow.

The basket production takes place primarily during the dry seasons, since most weavers are from farming communities who rely on subsistence farming and rainfall to sustain their families. By buying one of these woven baskets you are becoming a patron in the commitment to empowering women through fair trade.  So not only do you get the most gorgeous, hand made, home decor, you also are helping women support their families... how amazing is that!
