Working with over 3000 weavers across Kenya, Ghana & East Africa the basket room create handmade, ethical baskets & homewares. With the goal to connect traditional weavers with a wider market, reducing dependency on often unreliable self sufficiency farming, The Basket Room works to empower women & preserve ancient skills.
The ITALE hand woven basket from The Basket is the perfect way to organised you living or work space whilst still keeping it stylish and beautiful. All ITALE baskets are available in three different sizes XS, S, M - there really is one for everything! In store we love using the small ITALE baskets as pen pots and the larger baskets for blankets and bags. We love the aesthetic that these woven baskets give the store too.
All baskets from The Basket Room are hand woven using a process of twisting and weaving using natural sisal fibres. This means that they can withstand all weather conditions and last ages! All baskets are made by a collective of women who live in Masinga Dam in Kenya. Founded in 1993 this is a community that is still going strong today.
When purchasing any product from The Basket Room, you are helping to support the women who make the baskets, their families and their communities too!
