Kiondo Basket Bag - Long Leather Handles

by Mifuko

£55.00 - Sold Out

The Kiondo baskets have been found to be so popular and practical that many customers requested a version be made with long handles for use as a bag. Now available with long handles, these medium sized baskets are great for doing your food shopping, going to the gym or just carrying your everyday essentials. The Kiondo baskets with long handles are available in light blue and white or green and white. Each one is handwoven by women's self help groups in rural villages of Machakos county near Nairobi, Kenya. Made from sisal and food grade plastic, the weaving of sisal Kiondo baskets is a traditional Kenyan handcraft. Originally designed to be storage baskets for stylishly organising any untidy clutter of objects, including storing toys, firewood, magazines, loo roll, shoes or clothes, they have become even more versatile by the addition of long handles. The bags are extremely handy, robust and versatile, making them great little helpers in organising the home and when out and about. The Kiondos are by Mifuko, a design company founded in 2009 by two Finnish designers, Mari Martikainen and Minna Impiö. The company operates between Finland and Kenya, and follows fair trade principles in producing goods in partnership with self help groups and workshops that employ slum youth, people with disabilities and people with economically disadvantaged rural backgrounds. A certified member of the World Fair Trade Organization (WFTO) Mifuko's production is also environmentally sustainable. Click here to read more about Mifuko in the Our Makers section of our site.
