KIKAO: Teal & Hot Pink Colour Block Basket
Bold and bright, these KIKAO duo colour block baskets are designed exclusively by The Basket Room for SS23 and feature equal bands of Verdigris (blue-green) and bright pink. These handy and ethically-produced storage baskets come in three sizes so there’s scope to use them all over the home: as a desk tidy, a jewellery pot, as toy baskets and baskets for rugs, throws and slippers. These baskets also make perfect woven planters, and inspired new home gifts.
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.
