The Weaving Process

Our artisans utilise techniques that have been around for centuries, passed down from generation to generation, mother to daughter.

Each basket is a labour of love. Sisal fibres are harvested from local & sustainable sources in Kenya. The sisal is then dried, brushed, and dyed. The basket weaving process takes few days or up to a week depending on the size and complexity of the design. Every basket is unique and designed by the maker herself – each basket represents hours of work & the creativity of it’s maker.

Please Note

Due to the handmade nature of the baskets, variations do occur. The dimensions listed above are approximate, however, if you need the exact size of a particular basket, please contact us for the exact measurement.

When your basket arrives, it may be a little misshapen from transit. To restore its shape, simply spray it lightly with water and shape it to your liking. If needed, place an object in the basket to help it hold its form while drying.

Care Instructions

Keep your basket dry (except when shaping) and out of direct sunlight (natural dyes will fade over time when exposed to sun). If your basket does get wet, allow it to air-dry before using it again.
