Meet our merry artisans, weaving Mifuko Kiondos in the protective shade of a huge tree!  Kiondo weaving is a traditional Kenyan craft. Kiondo is a handwoven basket, traditionally made from sisal. Leather straps are sometimes attached, making the basket a handy bag. Our Mifuko Kiondos, woven by Kamba women in small villages in Machakos area, are skillfully crafted using these traditional methods, combining the techniques with Finnish design.
