We wouldn’t be what we are today without the beautiful souls that help us create our beautiful baskets. We work with women cooperative groups living in economically disadvantaged rural areas in Kenya. We also support self-help groups and workshops, organisations in Nairobi that employ slum youth and people with disabilities.
Our women artisans weave the baskets from sisal, an environmentally sustainable product. Weaving is an alternative, sustainable income for the women and helps to support their families during the dry seasons, as a supplement to their farming production.
The weavers are the backbone of our brand. You can almost feel their passion and talent when you hold up a Bahati Collection product. Every basket has been attended to by just one woman weaver, each one telling the makers personal story, pursuing original artwork and patterns that are personally yours.
Developed over multiple days, these products have accompanied our women weavers on their daily errands, enabling them to use all spare time in the development of your one-of-a-kind basket.
We’ve worked hard to pair up with the most moving artisans from Kenya, and we are so proud to be working with these experienced and ingenious artists in our world today.
