Story behind the Art:
The sisal plants are grown in Kenya and are a very eco-friendly crop. It requires little water and can be harvested year-round. The leaves are typically harvested by hand and the green outer leaf is removed and used as animal feed. This leaves behind long strands of super-strong natural sisal fiber that are hung in the sun to dry. Once dried, the fiber is dyed and woven into sturdy and functional baskets.
