Looking for the perfect Easter basket? Then look no further…
At 10 cm diameter and 10 cm tall, these delightful and colourful little baskets are perfect for Easter and are a great decorative accent.
These wonderful baskets (aka Kiondo) from Boostani are handwoven using sisal, a succulent plant that grows readily in arid parts of Kenya. Traditionally used to hedge the garden, its hardy fibres led to the emergence of other uses, such as to make ropes or to weave baskets and other crafts.
This is fair trade at its best! Boostani's handmade goods offer more than just a unique addition to your home: your purchase helps to support a community and way of life for rural Kenyan women and their families. Fair trade prices and practices are used all the way.
A bit about Boostani
Boostani's founder, Lois, comes from Kitui, a rural town in Kenya. Boostani translates from the Swahili language (bustani) to ‘garden’. A garden is a place where life is nurtured. Lois believes that beauty is represented in diverse forms and handmade items capture this beauty at its peak.
Boostani offers a variety of handmade products each unique to the customer. From colourful beaded key chains to beaded scarves to individualistic tote beach handbags and baskets, they add a modern yet African image to your household or wardrobe.
