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. Many of the weavers rely on subsistence farming, but when crops fail during dry periods, they turn to the art of weaving as an essential alternative revenue. Their unique perspective allows TBR to provide a truly ethical product with minimum outside involvement. Photographs of the weavers with each basket enhances the connection between maker and buyer, and highlights the transparent supply chain.
