These finely woven storage baskets are handcrafted in Kenya from the fiber of the agave sisalana plant. More refined than larger sisal baskets, these three petite nesting basket bins are perfectly adorned with colorful beads and can be used to store items throughout the home or as small decorative plant pots.

Responsibly sourced and thoughtfully crafted with sisal fiber and beads by Fair Trade artisans in Kenya. In the rural Kenyan countryside around the city of Kitui, women specialize in weaving the tough fibers of the agave sisalana plant. Sisal's spiky leaf clusters erupt from a dry landscape and often requires long journeys to gather. We recommend spraying lightly with cold water to reshape baskets.

"Singing, dancing, and chatting make weaving for export an enjoyable social event!"
