Bibi & Me Pinstripe Kiondo Basket
White and cobalt basket made of recycled polythene with short leather handles
This bold modern kiondo in white with blue pinstripe has been created by a cooperative of women in rural Kenya. They weave together with traditional sisal with polythene for a truly fair trade and chic statement in the home.
Size: Medium Dimension: 30cm diameter, 28cm high
A kiondo is an African handwoven handbag typically made from sisal and is indigenous to the Kikuyu and Kamba tribes of Kenya. You will never see two baskets the same and the small irregularities you may find comes from the true beauty of being made by hand
When you purchase from Bibi&Me you experience the true reciprocity of giving. Your purchase directly impacts the female artisans and weaving cooperatives we work with and their families, by creating sustainable income generating opportunities
A kiondo this size may take up to 4 full days to create and usually three weeks from order to fulfillment as they are woven in between times of a busy family and work life. Basket weaving has become an additional sustainable income source for our weavers.
