Product background

In Ukamban village the women of Kamba tribe weave different kinds of sisal baskets by hand. The group of women is called 'Sisal Sisters'. With the income the weaving provides they support their own family, as well as orphan and poor children of the village. By purchasing this product you also support the women in maintaining the Kamba tribe weaving tradition.

The long sisal fiber is extracted from the outer leaves of the sisal plant (species of Agave) by hand. This is done by crushing and beating the leaves with blunt knives so that only fibres remain. No chemical fertilizers are used in the sisal farms. No hard-metals are used in the dyeing process of Kikoi sisal baskets to ensure that the production of our colorful baskets doesn’t harm the Kenyan nature.
