Bring a unique splash of colour to the home with the KIMBIA planter. Woven from the blade of doum palm leaf and embellished with black glass beads, covering the basket like polka dots. These beautiful palm baskets make stylish flower pots & indoor planters. 

These palm baskets are woven and embellished by hand by the Ariaal people of Ngurunit, Northern Kenya. Ariaal people belong in part to both the Samburu and Rendille tribes, and these baskets borrow from both cultures: the tight basketry techniques of the Rendille and the Samburu beading seen in tribal headwear and necklaces.

Milk is a way of life for this community and these woven baskets were traditionally created as buckets for collecting and storing camel’s milk in. But as plastic and metal jugs became cheaply available for milking, production of these baskets fell into decline. The revival of these palm leaf baskets came about in 2001 when they were reimagined as stunning woven planters for the home, with the addition of multi-coloured beading.  

You help keep this precious art form alive when you purchase one of our palm leaf baskets. In buying from The Basket Room, you also become an important part of our journey in fair trade, supporting these skilled weavers through fair trade.
