The Basket Room is a new, contemporary interiors brand, with an emphasis on natural materials, traditional African craft and stylish design.
Co-founded by Camilla and Holly, The Basket Room works closely with small farming communities in Africa, who in times of drought turn to the art of weaving. It is this age-old tradition, passed down from grandmother to granddaughter that we are are helping to preserve, whilst also providing the weavers with a sustainable income.
Every basket is handmade, from the harvesting of the grass, to rolling, dyeing and finally weaving. Dyes are natural where possible and some are unique, one off designs, so you can be sure that your basket really is unique to you.
Both practical and beautiful, each basket can be used as a decorative storage accessory in any room of the home. Ideal for pot plants, toiletries, kitchen vegetables, bread, office stationery, laundry or your bike. A perfect gift for the textile lover, or a simple way to bring a splash of colour to your own home.
Working directly with the womens' cooperatives, The Basket Room is committed to its artisans and the recognition of their stunning work.
