Pickup available at MARGATE
Usually ready in 24 hours
This bag/basket with handles has been made sustainably using traditional hand weaving techniques by groups of talented women-weavers living in rural Kenya. A beautiful part of Africa blooming with baobab trees, cattle and small villages, all dotted around the impressive, flat topped Mt Kasigau. Our baskets are all fairly traded and ethically produced using natural dyes wherever possible. Use them as plant pots, gift baskets and general storage, for just about anything. They're valued according to size, you can use our size guide to help you choose between baskets or get your tape measures ready to size up every corner of your home.
Mulli is one of the fantastic artisans we work with in Kenya. He leads the group of weavers who make some of our Kenyan Baskets, as well as our Kenyan Brooms. We have worked with Mulli for many years now, and his expertise in weaving has been invaluable!

Your basket may arrive folded or slightly out of shape. When this occurs, Kenyan baskets can be easily brought back to life with a quick steam using a steamer or steam setting on your iron. Steam the basket and manually shape. Please be careful as the basket may be hot.
We recommend placing a small dish or saucer in the base of your Kenyan basket when using them as plant pots, this prevents the base from becoming damp and rotten when watering. Ideally we suggest you remove your plants and place in the sink or bath tub when soaking.
To clean your Kenyan basket, simply wipe clean with a damp cloth or sponge, remove most of the moisture with a dry towel and leave to air dry naturally.
Avoid placing your Kenyan basket in direct sunlight as this may cause some of the colours to fade.
