Description

These ethical baskets make delightful children’s storage and will also appeal to all of those with a playful approach to interiors – or a love of llamas! Use as a desk tidy or an indoor planter; use for storing your knitting or crafting bits; pop yours on your dressing table or use in the nursery for keeping toys, nappies or blankets tidy.

These trendy baskets also serve a fundamental purpose for the people who make them. The weavers, taught by their own mothers and grandmothers, make a vital secondary income fulfilling orders from THE BASKET ROOM. In times of unpredictable drought, flexible work like weaving enables these women – who otherwise rely solely on farming income – to better support their families throughout the seasons.

Woven from natural un-dyed sisal and sand-dyed sisal. This beautiful range of embroidered baskets is designed by The Basket Room in collaboration with British illustrator and designer Jacqueline Colley.
