Black striped basket

Description

These grass-woven baskets with black stripes have been handmade by small women’s groups such as the Kasigau – who are located in an “elephant corridor” that connects the Tsavo West National Park with the Tsavo East National Park.

Approximate size*

Small – 15 x 15cm

Medium – 26 x 26cm

Large – 38 x 38cm

*As all baskets are handmade, please expect some differences in sizing and patterns. 

Fair trade benefits to artisans

The majority of residents in areas such as Kasigau are women, as most men (as well as young people) move to nearby towns to look for jobs. Basket weaving is one of the few activities that give the remaining women a sense of agency – despite all social, economic and ecological barriers that hinder them.

Care

Our baskets are sturdy, strong, and flexible, made to withstand constant use. If properly cared for, your basket will live a long life.

Dust your woven basket on a regular basis, wiping with a damp cloth if necessary. No other cleaning should be necessary.

Changes in temperature and humidity may cause your basket to expand and contract, which may make securing the lid difficult at times. Be patient and wait for the weather to change or remove from areas with high humidity (like bathrooms).
