This tall, handwoven basket is made from sisal and banana fiber by talented women in rural Kenya. Sisal grows well in the semi-arid climate of eastern Kenya, and its spiky leaves contain long fibers that can be extracted for weaving. Sisal baskets can be easily wet with cold water and re-shaped.
Sold singly. Because this is a handcrafted item, each will vary slightly.
