Mkeka basket L (no straps)
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. Inside you will find a personal card with the name and picture of the artisan who made your basket.
Our beautiful baskets and shoppers are made from palmleaf fibers, that are grown locally. No pesticides nor chemical fertilizers are needed for this.
100% handmade in Kenya
Available in sizes XXS to XXL.
