Alama Hand Woven Basket
Bring a bloom of fresh, African colour to your home with our Fair Trade hand woven Alama baskets. The soft pink and light green bands on these beautiful baskets are woven from sisal by a small co-operative of women weavers in Kenya. Sustainably made, these are an elegant storage solution for any room. Use as a desk tidy, a fruit basket or as an eye-catching planter.
The baskets are hand-dyed and weaving takes place primarily during the dry seasons, since most weavers are subsistence farmers using basket weaving as a supplementary means of income. To buy one of our woven baskets is to support our commitment to empowering women through fair trade and to receive fair pay. Every striped basket comes with a thank you card from the weaving cooperative.
Each basket is sustainable, natural, biodegradable and renewable. Wipe clean.
