Hadithi Crafts

Mkeka Shopper Baskets

Mkeka Shopper Baskets

The palm weave shopper is made by hand by our artisans in south-eastern Kenya from a local palm called Magangachi, following traditional weaving techniques. There are a few steps in this labour intensive process. The result is a very light and very strong basket made from local palm leaf, perfect for market shopping, or storing things at home.

Then the basket is finished by our leather craftsmen in Buguta disabled group, with round short handles made of locally and naturally tanned goat leather.

Hadithi means 'a story' in kiswahili language. Handicrafts with a story, from Tsavo, Kenya.
