Fine Weave Geometric Baskets
The KADI baskets are a celebration of 100% natural dyes: striking black, brown and white stripes combine in a most striking, geometric effect.
This basket would look stunning in a nursery, child's bedroom or playroom.

About the Weavers
These patterned baskets are hand woven in rural Kenya by a skilled craftswoman working with her preferred weave patterns and choice of natural dyes. The making process is laborious and highly skilled. Sisal grass is hand stripped using wooden tools and bare feet, and then it is hand rolled to a very fine twine on the thighs before being woven using a classic twining technique.
The dyes used to create the stunning layers of colour in KADI are 100% natural, and hand-dyed in large vats of boiling water. For these women's groups, basket weaving is a portable, income-generating craft, and it takes place primarily during the dry seasons where crop production dwindles.
Each basket comes with a thank you card from the cooperative who made yours.
