EKA BASKETS AND SHOPPERS–
Handwoven baskets and shoppers by Kenyan women – Hadithi Baskets
Baskets that tell a story
Hadithi Crafts offers a collection of traditional and contemporary baskets, handmade by women in Tsavo (Kenya), from the fibre of the local Mkeka plant, a type of palmleaf. The weaver dries and twines her palmleaf fibres by hand, following traditional techniques passed on by generations of basket weavers. You will find the name of the women who made the basket handwritten in the basket, as well as a picture of the artisan weaver.
In love with nature
Our beautiful baskets and shoppers are made from palmleaf fibers. They grow locally. No pesticides nor chemical fertilizers are needed in sisal agriculture.
