These beautiful handwoven baskets are made by weavers in a small village in northern Kenya. The Elder women in the village weave these baskets out of natural sisal. Fill them with towels, blankets, plants, or toys and add a unique handwoven touch to your home. 

Every piece made by Jimani Collections is handcrafted by women in Kenya. Through unique training programs, we're able to offer customized opportunities to learn product design and product creation for all of our women and artisans.

Jimani Collections began with a small group of impoverished Kenyan women and a short class based on learning basic jewelry skills. With the help of many dedicated people both in the US and in Kenya, Jimani Collections has grown from a one-week class into an ongoing training and design entity.

Jimani Collections seeks to create a sustainable solution to poverty. We work with some of the poorest in the world - women who have experienced a harsh reality that few in the US can imagine. We offer these women employment and education within product design and product creation. By building a bridge between consumers and artisans in the developing world, we're able to promote equitable trade while alleviating widespread poverty. 

Through innovation, education, and design, Jimani Collections exists to transform and expand access to economic opportunity for artisans in underserved communities worldwide.

Each item sold by Department of Artisans employs an equal profit-sharing model.

Simply put, we make as much as our artisans do. The average split for each product is 40% artisan contribution, 40% DOA contribution, 20% importing + shipping fees. This means, our profits are the same as our artisans and we don't mark-up our prices like traditional retailers.

The 40% artisan contribution goes towards the cost of materials, the maker, and the project manager. The 40% DOA contribution goes towards marketing + operating expenses, and community initiatives. The 20% importing + shipping fees is paid out to each country during the exporting/importing process.

All shipments are securely packaged for safe and prompt delivery. We are happy to offer shipping worldwide. Please allow 1-2 business days for order processing.
