Hadithi breadbasket sisal
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 sisal plant. The weaver dyes, dries and twines her sisal fibres by hand, following traditional techniques passed on by generations of basket weavers. The basket is entirely a weaver’s own design, telling her story through the intricate patterns and colours she has chosen to weave. That’s why she leaves you a personal card with her name and picture, in your basket.
Sisal is an exceptionally durable and strong material, and grows well in harsh Kenyan climates. No pesticides nor chemical fertilizers are needed in sisal agriculture.
100% handmade in Kenya
Available in sizes XXS to XXL.
