We are very proud of our ethical status. We employ only four tailors and our products are not mass produced. Quality, and excellent workmanship.
If you can't find what you're looking for, please drop us a line as we can make to order.
We’re about slow fashion and zero waste. Bushbells: a purchase with a purpose!
Please FIRST select the colour/s you like before selecting the size you want.
Our fair-trade baskets are all handmade near the Taita Hills, not far from the coast.
The baskets we've chosen are a mixture of subtle gentle hues as well as the vibrant and colourful. They are ideal for solving storage problems (shoes, laundry, bathroom, study) and the handles on some make them 'easy to wear' beachside or townside when shopping! They are all one-off pieces. You're buying a little piece of sunshine craft, individually hand made and giving vital emploment to local women, in addition to giving them a second stream of income if crops fail.
Our STORAGE BASKETS come in 3 sizes: small, medium and large. The skillful basket weaving using sisal grass provides vital employment to womens' cooperatives in and around Tsavo. It's a craft that is labour intensive and the ladies design their own colours and patterns.

Medium: 18-22.5 cm DIAMETER x 18-22.5 cm HEIGHT

SHOPPING AND STORAGE BASKETS: Complete with leather handles, and finished with a smart leather trim, these are for your bigger quantities to store. Practical and pretty, use them for shoe storage, shopping, logs or laundry - the choice is yours!
Sturdy and stylish and have so many uses. Go for bright colours or natural hues.
Versatile and an iconic bit of Kenyan kit. I never go anywhere without mine - but I did grow up with them! JC
