Make a functional, fashion-minded statement with a Large Mkeka shopper basket. The tight weave makes the baskets strong and durable, yet soft and pliable.
The artisans gather the fallen palm leaves from Mkeka, a type of palm tree native to Kenya, and craft them into beautiful, sophisticated baskets.
Our unique, hand-woven Mkeka baskets are made by artisans living among the tree-covered hills of southern Kenya. The safe, joyful craftwork helps families and communities while empowering women and preserving traditional weaving skills.
