Kasigau Basket Weavers
THE ARTISAN : KASIGAU BASKET WEAVERS
Female artisans at Kasigau Basket Weavers, a social enterprise in Kenya, handcraft beautiful, natural baskets. The female artisans, who are between the ages of 25 and 90, are able to come together and collaborate in units, which leads to increased integration into the community and opportunities for them to creatively exchange ideas and advice to support one another. The income the artisans earn by creating these baskets supports their household earnings, which are usually generated from agriculture and farming. The female artisans have the opportunity to feel empowered, use their voices, and participate in essential decision-making processes at home and in the community at-large. We are proud to work on an exclusive line of vibrant sisal baskets with these artisans and to help generate additional income for them and their families.
