We adore these sweetly-sized mini baskets -each is one-of-a-kind and handwoven in rural Kenya by women's basket weaving co-operatives in the country’s Coastal Region. These beautiful woven baskets are ideal for use on your nightstand or dressing table, for keeping all your notions, jewelry, or trinkets in one place. 

The Basket Room works with a Community Based Organisation (CBO) which represents these women’s groups, and all profits made by the CBO through basket sales are used to support these groups.  Meet the weavers HERE.

Subsistence farming is the mainstay of these weavers’ livelihoods, but with crop production dwindling in the dry season – and droughts becoming more frequent and prolonged -  basket weaving has become a vital, income-generating craft for these women. By bringing home one of these fair trade baskets you play your own part in empowering women to financially support themselves and their families through the dry seasons. Please note, as this is a handmade product, dimensions & colour may vary from those shown in the photographs.

Baskets measure 3-4" in diameter x 1.5-2" tall and colors vary - we can't guarantee a certain color - each basket is one-of-a-kind!

The Basket Room creates beautiful collections of handwoven, decorative storage baskets for the home. Woven with stunning colors  and truly unique patterns, they work with small craft collectives in Africa to bring us ethical, stylish accessories with a story.
