Kamba Basket: Black
HANDWOVEN IN KENYA
✓ Social Impact
There is beauty in simplicity. Using strands of natural sisal dyed to a neutral modern black, women living in remote areas of rural Kenya earn income by crafting simple baskets that can be used for chic and practical 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.
Responsibly sourced and thoughtfully crafted with local sisal 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, as needed.
"Singing, dancing, and chatting make weaving for export an enjoyable social event!"
