Duotone Sisal Basket Blue

from 19.50

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. Only natural dyes are used, derived from tree barks, soil and roots. It's a long and very labour intensive process. 

With your purchase you support a woman, her family and contribute to a sustainable local economy. Use them as plant pot cover or to store your favorite items.

Hand woven
Due to the full handwork process sizes, design and colors may slightly vary.

These baskets are traditionally made by hand in the rural South of Tanzania. Women use a reed-like swamp grass and natural dyes, giving the baskets a natural, durable and timeless feeling.
