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. Kiondos are available in four sizes (XS, S, M and L) and in three different colours black, white and black and white striped. These clever baskets swallow up any untidy clutter of objects you have managed to create and are particularly good for storing toys, firewood, magazines, loo roll, towels or clothes. They can also be used to put plant pots in, making an ordinary plant pot look stylish and distinctive. The smaller baskets happily store kitchen utensils, keys, bathroom products, spice pots, desk clutter or any other small items. The storage baskets are extremely handy, robust and versatile, making them great little helpers in organising the home. Part of our , 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. to read more about Mifuko in the section of our site.
