The talented women behind Mafundi’s basket are all members of the Kamba tribe. The Kamba are renowned for their stunning basket weaving skills. This precious craft has been woven through generations within families - passed from mother to daughter.
The baskets are made from the Sisal-Agave. Sisal is a strong, drought resistant and environmentally friendly plant. The fresh sisal outer leaves are decorticated, dried, dyed and then weaved.
Natural dyes come from pounded roots, bark and vegetables of the region, whilst all synthetic dyes are sustainably sourced.
