More than any other items in the Harkiss Designs collection, our baskets bring the heart of East Africa into your home. Woven by skilled artisans in the community workshops of Uganda, Rwanda and Kenya, each basket features natural, sustainable materials like raffia, banana fibers, wild papyrus, sweet grasses, sisal and millet straw.
The dyes that color the traditional patterns of our baskets come from tea and from vegetables that the women weavers grow in their kitchen gardens, so they are non-toxic. Each basket is designed for specific uses in your home, but each would look lovely as an accent piece in your living room too.
Best of all, for every basket you purchase, Harkiss Designs gives back to the women and the children.
