Description

Description

The Basket Room is proud to work with a Community Based Organisation representing several women’s weaving cooperatives in Kenya. These most artistic collectives enjoy the flexible working conditions offered by basket weaving, and the fair rates of pay guaranteed by working within a cooperative. Sisal grass is hand stripped using wooden tools and bare feet, and then it is hand rolled on the thighs before being hand-dyed in natural dyes, in large vats of boiling water.
Basket weaving is a vibrant and income-generating art form, a craft passed down the female bloodline in Kenya. Weaving is a flexible, portable mode of work and takes place primarily during the dry seasons when crop production suffers. Each basket comes with a thank you card from the cooperative.
