Basket White with 5 Blue Stripes Medium 35x40cm
The Swahili word for “kiondo” means basket.
Kiondo bags and baskets are a Kenyan tradition, weaved with a special traditional technique. The knowledge of weaving is passed on from one generation to another. Each piece is handmade by skilled women in rural villages - our Team Kenya.
The core idea behind Mifuko stands in its name: in Swahili, ‘mifuko’ means pocket. With Mifuko, everyone is left with something valuable in their pocket. For the artisans in Kenya, it’s fair pay, empowerment, and less dependence on unpredictable farming as a source of income. For Mifuko customers (that’s you!), it’s a unique piece that weaves together classic Nordic design, traditional Kenyan handcraft, and the story of a strong, independent woman whose signature you can find on the label.
Material: Sisal and recycled plastic.
We are certified member of World Fair Trade organization and each of our basket is signed by the artisan who made it.
