Bowl Yellow Beaded & Natural
Bowl Yellow Beaded & Natural by The Basket Room
Meticulously woven from doum palm leaves, this bowl can be used as fruit bowls, jewellery baskets, desk tidies and organisers for bathroom toiletries. These palm leaf bowls are produced by weavers from both the Samburu and Rendille tribes - all members of the Ngurunit Weavers Group in Northern Kenya.
Farming and milk are the mainstays of this Ariaal pastoralist community, and traditionally these palm leaf baskets were woven to collect camel milk in, coated in a waterproof substance and smoked to make watertight. This tight and complex form of basket weaving has recently been revived, using the traditional Rendille weaving style along with Samburu designs and beading to create a versatile, beautiful home accessory.
