These baskets aren't just any old baskets, they have a story, a story which involves camels and milking...yes, camels and milking. Traditionally these very densely woven baskets were used to collect milk from the camels of the Samburu and Rendille people. They would have been coated in a waterproof substance and smoked to make them watertight. Until recently, basket weaving was a dying art in the villages, until its revival to make what was a milking basket into a decorative home accessory. Using the traditional Rendille weaving style and adding Samburu designs and beads, these baskets are now very much sought after. 

Each is very densely woven incorporating the beads into the weave, making them extremely durable, long lasting and of high quality. Ideal decorative storage baskets for the kitchen, bathroom, bedroom or living room. We love their modern rustic appeal and are so very glad that this art was saved and we can bring you these stunning creations today.
