Make a statement with this stylish Mkeka shopper basket! Perfect for any occasion, it will hold all your essentials and new purchases. The tight weave makes the baskets strong and durable, yet soft and pliable. This bag features a handy closure mechanism. The bag's pom-pom decoration is made of surplus wool, so the colour of the decoration may vary depending on availability.


Mifuko's baskets are fantastic. Not only are they made from sisal and 80% recycled food-grade plastics or paper. They are made by women's self-help groups in rural villages and small workshops in cities in Kenya. Using traditional Kenyan craftsmanship combined with contemporary Scandinavian design, they are easy to maintain, durable and versatile and will keep your home organised and make fabulous companions at the beach or out and about town.

With their clean design and lovely handwoven textures Kiondos are both beautiful and functional, but also environmentally sustainable and ethically produced. Kiondos are produced following the principles of Fair Trade and help bring secure incomes and fair working conditions to Kenyan artisans.

Mifuko's products are produced following the principles of fair trade. Their partner self-help groups and workshops employ slum youth, people with disabilities and people with economically disadvantaged rural backgrounds.

All Mifuko products are handmade. There isn’t a lot of money invested - materials and skilled hands are all that is needed. By demand, maintaining a traditional skill pays off and is passed on to the younger generation. For the artisans, Mifuko is an opportunity to improve their skills and invest in their workshops for increased income.

Mifuko is a certified member of the World Fair Trade Organization WFTO.
