This bold modern Kiondo in black and white stripe has been created by a cooperative of women in rural Kenya. A Kiondo is an African handwoven basket typically made from sisal and is indigenous to the Kikuyu and Kamba tribes of Kenya. They weave together traditional sisal with recycled plastic to create this truly amazing piece. The money they make from this work has become an additional sustainable source of income for them and their families.
Kiondos can be used for all matter of storage ideas, as a planter for your indoor greenery, a cute little home for all your kid's toys, a market basket or beach bag. Whatever you choose!
MATERIALS: Natural sisal and polythene. Recycled rubber handles.
