The Product: Stylish storage baskets in a vibrant blue stripe
These striped, stylish storage baskets marry the bold colours and skilled craftsmanship of Kenya with chic, Finnish Design. The baskets are a design statement in their own right. Use them around the house to tidy up toys, nappies, throws, magazines, scarves, belts or whatever other clutter you need to eliminate or conceal – including loo rolls!
The baskets are also environmentally sustainable, made from sisal and 80% recycled food-grade plastic. They are ethically produced in accordance with fair trade principles thereby helping to support female artisans and their families in rural villages in the Machakos county of Kenya.
These stylish storage baskets pack a decorative punch with their confident design and vivid colour blocking. They are durable, versatile and supremely practical. Depending on which size you go for the baskets have myriad uses. They’d also look great lined up on the lower shelf of a hall console for storing gloves and scarves. Try Swoon, Tikamoon or Cox & Cox for smart, double-level consoles. Alternatively, group together as planters for large, sculptural house plants or smaller, tabletop varieties. Finally, how about perched atop a French armoire (filled with out-of-season accessories) creating a pleasingly eclectic clash of vintage and ethnic styles.
