These unique kiondo Kenyan basket bags are made in Kenya using a mix of local Sisal grass and upcycled jumpers. Known as the ‘Nifty Knits’ baskets the jumpers are bought from local second hand clothes markets near to weaving cooperatives in eastern Kenya. The Kiondo baskets are unique but generally colourful and the wool is woven around a central structure of twisted Sisal grass.
The kiondo baskets are known to have generally been woven by mothers for their daughters as wedding gifts, these extraordinary African baskets can take up to six days to complete
