Product description

Living in remote areas of rural Kenya doesn't stop talented women from earning income. Using strands of sisal dyed to an adaptable black tone, weavers craft simple baskets that serve as chic storage in any room of the home. Sisal is a natural fiber extracted from an agave plant, so the baskets are coveted for their durability and ability to be re-shaped.

Sold singly, available in two sizes. We recommend spraying lightly with cold water to reshape baskets.

Approx. Dimensions:
Small: 14"D x 10"H (to top of basket), 14"H (to top of handles)
Large: 16"D x 10"H (to top of basket), 14"H (to top of handles)

Crafted from: Sisal fiber
Made in: Kenya

We believe that hardworking African artisans, producers, and export agents hold the key to their own personal success and that the path to success requires a steady, committed pace. We can extend each artisan's channel of trades from local markets to the global marketplace, all the while providing them with options to work from the comfort of their own homes and communities. Secure in the knowledge that the fair payment they receive will not be reduced by traveling expenses, childcare costs, and haggled prices, most artisans in the network promote their family's future by using earnings to put food on the table and pay educational expenses for their children.

Fair Trade Federation, a group of like-minded companies and organizations that adhere to:
providing fair payment to workers in developing nations
educating artisans and workers to increase their potential for advancement
ensuring the rights of children
developing products and processes that protect and conserve the natural environment
promoting fair trade as the standard in commercial exchanges
