HOJI: Hot Pink Colour Block Woven Basket
These bright pink and white colour block baskets are produced in three handy sizes, woven from indigenous sisal grass in rural Kenya. Use your woven storage basket for keeping your hair accessories and toiletries organized, or fill with children’s toys, remote controls and gloves and hats. These round sisal baskets also make beautiful woven planters for your houseplants – and wonderful new home gifts. Wherever and however you choose to use your new woven basket it is sure to bring a splash of vibrant Kenyan colour to your home.
The women behind our baskets have woven from a young age: this meticulous, age-old craft is passed along the female line, from grandmothers to mothers to daughters. Sisal grass is sourced ready-rolled when orders come in, and is hand-dyed in large vats before a traditional twining method is used to produce each basket. Where once these women used to have to travel to Nairobi to sell their woven baskets, today The Basket Room places regular and fairly-paid orders with this most adept group, and completed baskets are stored in purpose-built mud huts.
When you purchase one of these gorgeous colour block baskets you help us keep this traditional craft alive for future generations of weavers to make a sustainable income from.
