In 2017, when the government banned single use plastic bags, Shiku has started her business: Kirembo.
She saw the opportunity of replacing plastic with the traditional baskets that are hand woven. The baskets are composed of natural fiber (sisal), which grows in the semi-arid areas of Kenya. Thus, they are 100% biodegradable and an environmental-friendly product. Each basket is unique, thus
“I am passionate about handmade Kiondo baskets, especially those made in Kenya. My late grandmother used to weave and sell Kiondo and I am very conscious of keeping up with this tradition.”
Kiondos are pure Kenyan craftmanship!
