This basket was hand-crocheted by Florence Mukeihi. Florence has an incredible sense of color and pattern. Each basket is different and original. The shape of this basket is a bit like a bowl. It would look amazing as a centerpiece on a dining room table. 

 

Florence Mukeihi is happily married with two young boys. She is very creative, and talented and loves making baskets. Florence also owns a shop where she works as a tailor making clothing during the day. Due to her success with this project, she’s built a new modern home in her village for her family to live in. Most importantly, Florence says making baskets has brought her so much joy and creative freedom. She loves seeing herself, her family, and the women around her grow and flourish due to the income from this project.

 

Florence is a member of the women’s adult literacy group in Kiumbe Village in Kenya. She joined so that she could learn to read and write. Being a member of this adult literacy group provides so much more than an education. It gives the women the opportunity to learn from each other and to provide support for those who need help and advice.

 

The women also have the option to learn how to crochet, which is a traditional craft in Tharaka Nithi, Kenya. This income-generating opportunity has been a source of pride for the women. Many can send their children to school, repair their homes, buy new clothes, animals, and food, and get proper health care.

 

This basket has a photo of Florence holding her masterpiece.
