MEET THE ARTISAN
SAMBURU BASKET WEAVERS
Located in: Kenya
In the Ngurunit region of Northern Kenya, artisan women weave beautiful baskets using palm leaves. They incorporate traditional techniques and designs, which were based on the original storage of camels’ milk in pastoral communities, while also creating these pieces for functional use in the modern home. At one time, Samburu women were only permitted to own milk, affecting them disproportionately. Through positive societal changes and an overall increase in the literacy rate in Ngurunit, these women are treated with more respect, can improve their livelihoods, and earn fair wages within the community.
