This colourful woven shopper bag is designed exclusively by The Basket Room and is 100% Kenyan and totally vegan. They’re used pure, twisted sisal straps, making this woven shopper an ultimately ethical choice. This bag is an absolute stunner, in bright pink and orange, you’ll want to take this everywhere with you! Large enough to fit quite a lot of shopping in, it’s ideal for popping in your essentials when you need to stop off to pick up some shopping.
These baskets are handwoven by a small collective of female weavers living near the Masinga Dam in Kenya – one of seven dams on the River Tana. Their chairlady started managing basket production in 1993, and today she leads several groups with specific production roles from twisting to dyeing and weaving sisal fibres.
The Basket Room work with weaving cooperatives empowering women to support their families with a flexible income in the dry seasons, where subsistence farming often fails to meet the needs of the family.
A truly stylish and beautiful bag, that you’ll want to use again and again!
