These turquoise Lazima baskets are handwoven from sisal for The Basket Room in South Western Kenya. They are great for storage and are available in three useful sizes. They can be used as flower pots and planters for indoor plants as well as for keeping you organised.
These baskets are made by small co-operative women’s weaving groups in Kenya. They help women support their families since subsistence farming alone often fails to meet the families needs. All products are fair trade. When you buy one of these woven baskets you are actively supporting these weavers’ livelihoods, and supporting The Basket Room in their commitment to empowering women. Each woven basket is supplied with a thank you card from the weaving cooperative.
