Ghafla Woven Basket - Extra Small

We have run out of stock for this item.

Designed exclusively by The Basket Room, the GHAFLA duo colour block baskets sport thick bands of mango yellow and biscuit – a joyful juxtaposition of colour that transcends the seasons. Available in three sizes, the GHAFLA basket makes a fabulous indoor planter or flower pot, or can be used for slippers and blankets, knitting or toys. The possibilities are endless.

The craftswomen in this growing cooperative are extremely skilled at weaving repeat patterns, using their tape measures to produce our set sizes and meeting weekly with their Chairlady to arrange work, deliver completed orders and pick up wages. Sisal grass is purchased ready-rolled when orders come in, and is hand-dyed in large vats before a traditional twining method is used to produce each basket. Where once these women used to have to travel to Nairobi to sell their woven baskets, today The Basket Room places regular and fairly-paid orders with this most adept group, and completed baskets are stored in purpose-built mud huts.
