The Hujambo range features beautiful handwoven geometric lines in earth tones

Made from natural dyes with beautiful earth tones reflecting the towns and landscapes where these beautiful baskets are made. These baskets come in various patterns and designs and are a celebration of craftsmanship by a group of women in Kenya's coastal regions.

Perfect as an indoor planter as they are made from 100% grass, or as decor pieces in design, make a statement on a kitchen island as storage for cutlery and wooden spoons, spacious enough to use in the pantry for storing your ginger, garlic, herbs and condiments

Sisal grass is hand stripped using wooden tools and bare feet, then it is hand-rolled on the thighs before being hand-dyed in natural dyes, in large vats of boiling water.

Basket weaving is an income-generating art form, a craft passed down from generations in Kenya. Weaving usually takes place primarily during the dry seasons when crop production suffers.
