Our fair-trade baskets are all handmade in and around Tsavo. These baskets are a bit of sunshine craft, individually handmade and giving vital emploment to local women. It's a craft that is labour intensive and the ladies' design their own patterns, so each piece is unique.

The baskets are a mixture of subtle hues and splashes of colour. They are ideal for solving storage problems (shoes, laundry, bathroom, study) and the handles on some make them easy to use beachside or in town whilst shopping. 

Sisal is a robust natural twine, and the stiff fibres are extracted by a process known as decoritcation, where leaves are crushed, beaten, and then water is used to wash away the waste parts of the leaves.
