Colorful Sisal Basket

from 28.00

These beautiful baskets are handwoven by women in the rural villages around Kasigau - Kenya. The region is located on an elephant corridor that connects the Tsavo National Parks with the Mkomanzi Reserve in Tanzania. Basket weaving has become increasingly important in the past years, as crops have been destroyed by lack of rain and elephants migrating through their fields. 

Thin sisal fibers are dyed, rolled to twine on their lap and carefully woven into a stunning basket. It's a long and very labour intensive process. The women have creative freedom, weaving patterns and colors of their choice. The inspiration of the weaver and the moment makes each basket unique and the women like to challenge each other with new designs. 

Basket weaving is allowing the women to become financially independent, feed their children and pay school fees. Use them as plant pot cover or to store your favorite items.
