Introducing the striking MKAA baskets.
These beautiful, ethically-produced baskets come in three sizes so they're perfect for all throughout your home: on your desk, in the bathroom, and even in the kitchen or on the dining room table, filled with fruit or bread.
These baskets are handwoven by a small collective of female weavers living near the Masinga Dam in Kenya – one of seven dams on the River Tana. Their chairlady started managing basket production in 1993, and today she leads several groups with specific production roles from twisting to dyeing and weaving sisal fibres.
Backing all the values of fair trade, The Basket Room work with weaving cooperatives empowers women to support their families with a flexible income in the dry seasons, where subsistence farming often fails to meet the needs of the family.
When you take home one of our woven baskets you actively support these weavers and their families, supporting our commitment to dignified working conditions.
Please note, as this is a handmade product, dimensions & colour may vary from those shown in the photographs.
