Our Kenyan shopping baskets - called "mkekas" - are handwoven by talented women weavers in several Taita villages of Southeastern Kenya. Woven from indigenous palm leaves grown in the area and finished with leather handles, these baskets are perfect for a day at the beach or shopping at the market, and they make beautiful household storage baskets and plant pots.
Kenyan shoppers are sourced through the non-profit organization Solid Crafts, which provides sustainable employment for underprivileged women in India, Peru and Kenya. We're thrilled to be partnering with Solid Crafts and look forward to offering more of their unique products over the coming months.
