Description

Artisan: Kasigau Weavers

This hand-woven basket is crafted from natural sisal fibres in a range of vibrant colours found in the national dress of Kenya.
Kenya is renowned for its delicate hand-woven baskets, which still feature there in everyday life. This basket is made by a group of 30 women for whom basket-making has become increasingly important in the past years, as crops have been destroyed by elephants migrating through their fields to the Tsovo East National Park.

• Dimensions: approximately 14" (36cm) d. x 12" (30cm) h.
