Small KUZUIA Basket by THE BASKET ROOM

From The Basket Room's striped baskets range. The KUZUIA is handwoven of natural sisal and makes a beautiful and fun textured planter basket. Bold neon pink patterning pops against a natural and white base.

 

Perfect for your smaller plants and fits nursery pots up to 12cm in diameter.

 

The Basket Room is a contemporary interiors brand with an emphasis on ethical handmade production, natural materials, traditional African craft and stylish design.

 

The women who produce these KUZUIA striped baskets have woven from a young age, since this wonderful, income-generating craft is traditionally passed down along the female line in Kenya. The women weave within a small but ever-growing cooperative led by the inspirational Madam Dorcas as Chairlady. These weavers used to have to travel to Nairobi to sell their woven baskets but these days The Basket Room keeps them busy with regular and fairly-paid orders, and baskets are stored in purpose-built, mud store rooms.

 

Basket weaving takes place largely during the dry seasons, since most of the weavers in this cooperative are subsistence farmers who use basket weaving as an alternative means of income when crop production dwindles.

 

To own one of The Basket Room's woven baskets is to support their journey: empowering women to support their families through flexible, dignified and fairly paid work. Each woven basket comes with a thank you card from the cooperative who made yours.
