Nifty Knit Baskets

Regular price $79.99 Sale

The Baskets

The baskets are made from recycled clothing and sisal. Second-hand sweaters are washed and unraveled into separate balls of colored wool. Baskets are woven for 4 days.

Each basket is entirely unique, an expression of true art.

Known officially as Kiondos in rural Kenyan communities, these tribal pattern baskets were traditionally woven as gifts from mothers to their daughters. 

 

The Artisans

This basket is woven by some of the most skilled and expressive weavers of the Kenyan Kamba tribe. These baskets offer Kenyan weavers flexibility from their primary source of income, farming.
