HOJI: Hot Pink Colour Block 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 Basket Room is proud to partner with weaving groups in several rural corners of Africa, and the women in this particular group are simply brilliant at producing an array of gorgeous colours through meticulous hand dyeing. These women have woven from a young age: the age-old craft of basket weaving is passed along the female line and is being kept alive for future generations thanks to your purchases.
Basket weaving within a group empowers women to support their families with a flexible income in the dry seasons, where subsistence farming becomes unsustainable.
