Weaving together timeless Nordic design and traditional Kenyan handcraft small baskets are perfect for storing just about anything - use them as a bread basket, bathroom basket or kitchen utensil basket. Each unique item is the work of hands and hearts: beautiful, extremely durable and easy to keep clean.
Sisal and recycled plastic.
Mifuko is a certified member of the World Fair Trade organization and each of the baskets is signed by the artisan who made it.
In Swahili, kiondo means basket.
Kiondo baskets - and bags - are a Kenyan tradition, woven with a special traditional technique. Each piece is handmade by skilled women in rural villages - our Team Kenya. Their knowledge of weaving has been passed down from generation to generation.
The core idea behind Mifuko is in its name: in Swahili, ‘mifuko’ means pocket. With Mifuko, everyone is left with something valuable in their pocket. For the artisans in Kenya, it’s fair pay, empowerment, and less dependence on unpredictable farming as a source of income.
For Mifuko customers (that’s you!), it’s a unique piece that weaves together classic Nordic design, traditional Kenyan handcraft, and the story of a strong, independent woman whose signature you can find on the label.
All Mifuko products are handmade and unique as well as very eco-friendly, achieved by using locally sourced natural fibres, paper, wood, leather and either recycled or upcycled plastic in their products.
