Banana Fibre Woven Basket
Hand woven banana fibres create an earthy, textured earthy look.
Basket weaving is a vital and income-generating art form, passed down the female bloodline. Woven by extremely talented craftswomen working within a weaving cooperative in Kenya’s rural Coastal Region, these storage baskets are ethically made, to fair trade standards. Our supplier works with a Community Based Organisation representing several women’s weaving cooperatives in Kenya. Profits from sales and all donations are used to offer further support to these women’s groups.
Weaving is a flexible, portable mode of work and takes place primarily during the dry seasons since most weavers are subsistence farmers reliant largely on the production of their crops as a source of income.
