    Each ethical basket bag takes up to six days to complete, a truly Kenyan work of colour, spirit and craft. The Kamba artisans design each basket bag themselves, choosing patterns and colourways of their own preference, making each one completely unique. 

  • You support the revival of this creative art when you purchase a Kenyan Basket Bag and in doing so you help us to support these weavers in a truly fair trade. Basket weaving has become a flexible, supplementary source of additional income for the tribe members, whose main earnings come from farming – a line of work that’s largely dependent on rainfall and therefore vulnerable to drought. Each woven basket is supplied with a thank you card from the weaving cooperative.
