Product Description

All our baskets are hand woven in Kenya using natural materials and dyes, taken from bark, soil, plants and flowers. Commercial textile dyes are also used in the brighter tones. Making baskets is a slow process; after decorticating (removing the bark) from the spikey sisal leaves, the fibers are then twined, dyed twice and dried by the weavers. Whilst each basket is made with great care and patience, occasionally a little bump in the sisal or a knot in the wool can be seen. This will not effect the baskets durability, and only adds to the charm of the craft. Some of the baskets have the weavers name stitched on with a few raw threads of twine, these can be left on or simply cut to remove.
