Hand-woven by women in rural Kenya, our sisal baskets are a beautiful addition to your life and home. Each basket represents hours of work and unites traditional craft with modern living.
A team of 200 Kenyan women gather in small groups each day to practice the traditional craft of basket-weaving. This time-honored process is passed down through generations of women and remains largely unchanged today. The women use fibers of sisal plants, an abundant local cactus, to meticulously spin then weave each strand. The income generated by these women and their skill helps rural communities flourish and grow.
