About the Artisans:

Turkana weavers, handweaving baskets

The Turkana tribe lives in the remote, semi-arid Turkana District in northwest Kenya. Their environment is frequently affected by drought, leading the Turkana people to habitually relocate to seek rain and fresh vegetation. They are pastoralists, relying on cattle for many of their needs. The tribe often travels in small groups to find pasture to sustain their livestock.

Turkana basket weavers are women of the tribe, weaving in the traditional coil method that has been passed down through generations. They weave with gingerbread palm fronds, also called doum palm—a drought-resistant native plant in northern Africa, which also produces edible date fruits.
