Baskets and Beads by Artisans of Kenya is a project that started last year when Eldonna went to Kenya and met the ladies of the Kipsongo slum. Since that time she has a growing community in Kenya of women who are joining together in cooperation to produce beautiful hand crafted jewelry, baskets and purses. We thought we’d share a photo journal of several of their hand crafted items.
Sometimes we are set up at various shows with most or all of the products we have on hand:
Our most popular product is the paper beaded necklaces and bracelets. The necklaces come in long and medium length and are multi colored or solid color and crafted from recycled magazines and paper:
These beautiful wired beaded baskets are also a favorite. They come in many different colors and a couple different styles.
A new product we added are these beautiful handbags that are very colorful and stylish. The bags are very sturdy and functional.
These are some examples of the products created by the women in Kenya. Please contact us if you are interested in purchasing any of these items or inquiring about wholesale purchase.
