How they are made
These baskets are unique pieces, hand woven from the indigenous sisal plant and then hand dyed. The stiff leaves of this fibrous shrub are often used for producing rope and twine, and undergo a lengthy process of harvesting, rolling and dyeing - all by hand. The dyes used to create the stunning layers of colour in these baskets are 100% natural, and hand-dyed in large vats of boiling water.
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.
