TELL ME MORE

Traditionally woven by mothers as wedding gifts for their daughters, these African wool baskets - also known as kiondos - are hand woven by a member of the Kamba tribe in Kenya. Made from the yarn of second hand woolly jumpers, each basket is unique and takes up to 4 days to complete. 

Kiondo weaving was a diminishing craft in Kenya until very recently: in 2004 only four craftswomen in the weaving cooperative had the experience to produce them, but today there are around fifty active members reviving this wonderful craft.  

To own one of these unique wool baskets is to become a part of their journey: a finely woven tale of ethics, beauty and craftsmanship. Camilla and Holly, co-founders of The Basket Room, are proud to support the weavers in this sustainable trade, providing an additional source of income for farming families during the dry seasons.
