These orange and natural colour block storage baskets are available in three handy sizes and can be used as flower pots and planters for indoor plants, desk tidies and fruit baskets. Turmeric is a colour that’s going to be seen everywhere in 2019: an enlivening orange that infuses just a hint of pungency into the palette. Use yours in the bathroom for toiletries or loo rolls, or pop yours on your dressing table for keeping jewellery and knick knacks all in one place.
Our coloured baskets are produced by a small Kenyan weaving cooperative of around forty members, with a dedicated dye manager who oversees colour quality and consistency. Sisal grass is sourced ready-rolled when orders come in from The Basket Room, hand-dyed in large vats of boiling water and hung out to dry before the weaving starts.
Bringing together all the values of fair trade, our partnership with this Kenyan cooperative helps women to support their families more comfortably, since subsistence farming alone often fails to meet the needs of a family. Buy one of our woven baskets and you actively support these weavers’ livelihoods, and The Basket Room’s commitment to empowering women.
