KIKOI SISAL BASKETS

 

Kikoi sisal products – beautiful sisal storage baskets, bread baskets and bags – are all handmade by 2 groups of women in Kenya.The long sisal fiber is extracted from the outer leaves of the sisal plant (species of Agave) by hand. This is done by crushing and beating the leaves with blunt knives so that only fibres remain. No chemical fertilizers are used in the sisal farms. No hard-metals are used in the dyeing process of Kikoi sisal baskets to ensure that the production of our colorful baskets doesn’t harm the Kenyan nature.

 

KIKOI RIVER GRASS BASKETS

 

Kikoi Victoria baskets are woven by a widow group near lake Victoria in Kenya. The river grass comes from the famous Sondu Miriu river, and the river grass used for the weaving is generally called the ‘Miriu grass’. Kikoi has visited the wonderful widow group many times and the visits are always as heart-warming and the Victoria lake as beautiful as always.

 

MILULU GRASS BASKETS FROM TANZANIA

 

The extremely durable and tightly hand-woven baskets are made of Milulu grass, a reed-like swamp grass, in Iringa, Tanzania, home of the Hehe people. Because of the exceptionally good weaving quality, and the wonderful qualities of Milulu grass, the simple designs of Iringa baskets are perfect for both indoor and outdoor use. World-famous Iringa baskets have been featured in major home decoration magazines like Elle Interior.

 

BANANA FIBER HOME ACCESSORIES

 

Plates, bowls, baskets, place mats, runners, pot holders….all made of this magnificent material. The sundried banana leaves can be found everywhere where there are banana trees, and it is fantastic to be able to use this material for such beautiful home decorations! The quality of Kikoi banana fiber products is superior – the weave is so strong and tight, we have seriously trouble finding a large enough hole for tags!

 

WILD OLIVE TREE HOME ACCESSORIES

 

Wild olive tree spoons, knives, scoops, salad servers and garden tools to different shaped bowls and cutting boards...all our olive wood products are hand-made in Kenya. The work center where all our wild olive tree products come from employs many Kamba tribe people based in Machakos and also in Kikomba slum in Nairobi. As a material the olive wood is very hard and is prized for its durability, colour and high combustion temperature.

 

KISII STONE PLATES AND ACCESSORIES

 

The Kenyan soapstone, Kisii stone, comes from the Tabaka Hills of Western Kenya. It is carved by hand, then given the final touch with sand paper and water. Kenya is globally known of these Kisii soap stone decorations and kitchenware. The soft surface makes you want to touch and feel the material again and again!

 

NATURAL PUMICE STONE FOR FEET

 

Kikoi Pumice stone is gathered from the Mount Longonot in Kenya. The mountain is a stratovolcano located southeast of Lake Naivasha in the Great Rift Valley of Kenya, Africa. This mawe (means stone in Swahili language) has been used for hundreds of years amongst African women to treat their feet naturally.
