Rainbow Embroidered Woven Storage Basket by The Basket Room

A playful rainbow motif designed by illustrator Jacqueline Colley adorns this ethically hand-woven sisal basket, hand embroidered by Nduta, an exceptionally talented artist working in Nairobi.

These ethical baskets make delightful children’s storage and will also appeal to all of those with a playful approach to interiors. Use as desk tidies and planters, on bedside tables and coffee tables - or for knitting, crafting, toys, muslins or toiletries.

Not just practical and on-trend, these baskets also serve a fundamental purpose for their Kenyan makers. The weavers, taught by their own mothers and grandmothers, make a vital secondary income fulfilling orders from The Basket Room. In times of unpredictable drought, flexible work like weaving enables these women - who otherwise rely solely on farming income - to better support their families throughout the seasons.

Woven from natural undyed sisal and sand-dyed sisal.

 

Material:  SISAL, WOOL & BRANDED LEATHER TAB

Dimensions: 14.5-15.5CM DIA X 14.5-15.5CM H

Please note, due to the handmade nature of the basket, the colours may vary to that shown in the photograph.
