      WEAVE BEAUTY INTO YOUR LIFE

      The larger cousins to our Mfuko bags, these chic Kenyan baskets can be worn over the shoulder, or slung comfortably on your arm.  Each basket is handcrafted from sisal, a process that starts with the harvesting and preparing of the sisal fibers.  Once brushed and dried, the fibers are hand dyed and the weaving can begin, taking place between day-to-day farming and household duties.  It can take up to a week to complete a basket, depending on its size and complexity.  Once finished, the baskets are handed to a fundi, or tradesperson, who adds the leather handles and details.  The baskets then begin their journey to us in Canada, and ultimately, on to you!
