Hapa Raspberry Colour Black Lidded Laundry Basket (M)
These dreamy pink and white colour block baskets are made by hand in Kenya by a small weaving cooperative of 40 ladies. Using local sisal, the grass is hand-dyed in large vats and hung to dry before a traditional twining method is used - a meticulous skill that most weavers learn when they are young.
Buying these colour blocked baskets actively supports the weavers in supporting their families through the perilous dry season, where subsistence farming, the main source of local income can suffer. A Fair Trade product.
