Basket weaving is an ancient craft that tells the tales of the communities that created them. In Africa, this tradition is rich and varied, each region and tribe producing baskets with distinctive patterns, colours, and forms. The beauty, utility, and rich cultural heritage of African baskets make them a coveted home décor item worldwide, and at EYA Home Living, we bring these fascinating pieces straight from the African continent to your doorstep.
Eya, pronounced 'ee-ya,' means 'dwelling or home,' and is inspired by a mix of African languages. Born from our profound love for interiors, we've curated an exclusive collection of authentic and original decor items that capture the African spirit and heritage. Our African baskets are one of our most sought-after items, appealing to discerning customers looking to infuse a sense of warmth and uniqueness into their living spaces.
African baskets are handcrafted with meticulous care and skill, passed down through generations. Every basket weaves a story - the patterns, materials, and techniques reflecting the tribe's traditions, environment, and way of life. From Ghana's Bolga baskets to Rwanda's Agaseke, each basket holds its distinct charm and character.
One of the fascinating aspects of owning African baskets is understanding their history and cultural significance. For example, the sisal baskets from Kenya are more than just a decorative item. They're a testament to women's empowerment, as they are traditionally crafted by women using locally available materials to generate an income. Each purchase contributes to supporting these artisans and their communities.
At EYA Home Living, we ensure all African baskets purchased are not just a décor item but a piece of heritage that's authentic and original. Our baskets are sourced from across Africa, each carefully selected for its quality, aesthetic appeal, and cultural value. They're versatile, serving as beautiful storage solutions, impressive centrepieces, or even as wall art. Plus, they're eco-friendly, made from natural materials, and produced using sustainable practices.
