These large blue and white baskets look fantastic and are extremely useful to have around the home. Kiondo baskets are 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. The Kiondo baskets are available in various sizes, colours and different length handles. These large baskets are great for stylishly organising any untidy clutter of objects you have managed to create and are particularly good for storing toys, firewood, magazines, towels or clothes. The storage baskets are extremely handy, robust and versatile, making them great little helpers in organising the home. Part of our Storage collection, 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.
