KANUSHA: Wheat and Blue stripe sisal basket
Ideal for organisation around the house, decor, plant pot cover, pantry storage, toy storage adding natural texture and colour to your space.
Handmade by a self help group of lady weavers in a remote rural village in Kenya. Due to the arid/dry environment the women rely on weaving before the rainy season. Working directly with the weavers ensures fair trade & sustainability bringing financial security & providing additional income to sustain their livelihood.
We use 100% locally grown environmental friendly sisal with high quality fibres. .
Woven from sisal (perennial succulent) extracting the fibre is a sincere labour of love. The fibre is then dried, brushed and dyed with natural food products. It takes few days or up to a week to finish a basket depending with the size and complexity of the design. Each basket represents hours of work & has it’s own unique qualities & reveals layers of stories woven into the strands
Purchasing one of these baskets supports it’s makers and helps preserve an ancient craft tradition.
