Set/2 Gray Twill Sisal Lidded Storage Containers

Swahili Modern

KG11B

  • This versatile set of 2 nesting baskets, in a gray twill, is handwoven using strands of natural and hand-dyed sisal by talented female artisans in rural Kenya. The baskets are coveted for their ability to be re-shaped with a light spray of cold water, as well as their durability and all-natural composition.

    Size: [Small] 6.5"D x 4"T [Large] 7.5"D x 5.25"T. Due to the handcrafted nature of this item, some variation may occur. 

  • In the rural Kenyan countryside around the city of Kitui, women specialize in weaving the tough fibers of the agave sisalana plant. Sisal's spiky leaf clusters erupt from a dry landscape and often requires long journeys to gather. Once woven, these baskets are sold to local and international markets. Singing, dancing, and chatting make weaving for export an enjoyable social event!
