Story

This Kitwaro Basket is part of our MADE51 Collection, UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR)’s global brand of refugee-made products. It’s a traditional product shape used by households in Tanzania to store grains or bring gifts to friends and family. We’re now bringing this traditional shape to your modern home as a meaningful accent object and a stylish way to store your household belongings or dry foods, onions etc. For this Kitwaro Basket, white threads of upcycled “Gunia” grain sacks are intricately woven into the natural grasses. This particular Kitwaro Basket features the Ikiba design, stemming from the word “Ikibano” representing the refugee population as a “Community” with a shared background & determination of working together to overcome the struggles in the camp.
