How they are made
These baskets are unique pieces, hand woven from the indigenous sisal plant and then hand dyed in large vats using natural charcoal to achieve the chalky-soft grey hue. A traditional twining method is used to produce this range of baskets: a complex weave which uses two elements woven skilfully around a central spoke.
The Basket Room works with weaving cooperatives in several rural corners of Africa. Where once the weavers in this group used to have to travel to Nairobi to sell their woven baskets, today The Basket Room places regular and fairly-paid orders. Working with these cooperatives helps women to support their families with a fair and flexible income in the dry seasons, where subsistence farming often fails to meet the family’s needs.
