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.
ALERT - it's that time of year when stock levels are getting low. We do have another shipment due at the beginning of December, so do CONTACT US if you can't see what you're looking for. If one of your products is a pre-order, and not coming in until December, we'll let you know, and we will post out out once the order is complete - so there may be a little delay.
We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause, but good for you to know we're about 'slow fashion' and zero waste. 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 Kenya's coastal region. Finished with a soft leather trim, 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.
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 make them 'easy to wear' beachside or townside when shopping! And some have the name of the 'maker' sewn into them - so look carefully! It's a little piece of sunshine artwork you're getting! All one off pieces.
Versatile and an iconic bit of Kenyan kit. I never go anywhere without mine - but I did grow up with them! JC
