The Basket Room is an ethical lifestyle brand, specialising in handwoven baskets and accessories made in Africa. They work directly with weaving cooperatives in rural Kenya, Ghana & Zimbabwe to create these versatile and beautiful handwoven baskets,
Their main goal is to create access to market for these talented weavers, to provide them with a sustainable income and the recognition they deserve, whilst preserving an age-old tradition.
