Living in remote areas of rural Kenya doesn't stop talented women from earning income. Using strands of sisal dyed to a beautifully neutral sand tone, weavers craft simple baskets that serve as chic storage in any room of the home. Sisal is a natural fiber extracted from an agave plant, so the baskets are coveted for their durability and ability to be re-shaped.
Sold singly, available in two sizes. We recommend spraying lightly with cold water to reshape baskets.

We believe that hardworking African artisans, producers and export agents hold the key to their own personal success, and that the path to success requires a steady, committed pace. Swahili extends each artisan's channel of trade from local markets to the global marketplace, all the while providing artisans with options to work from the comfort of their own homes and communities. Secure in the knowledge that the fair payment they receive will not be reduced by traveling expenses, childcare costs and haggled prices, most artisans in the Swahili network promote their family's future by using earnings to put food on the table and pay educational expenses for their children.
