The Ngurunit Basket Weavers is a cooperative based in the Ngurunit Community of Samburu County in northern Kenya. Their baskets are sold under the label of Nomadic Baskets. The product line is based on the traditional style of the Rendille camel-milking basket, which was a dying craft before the women of Ngurunit banded together to preserve it. Now, the traditional weave using doum palm and wild sisal with bead and shell decorations is used to weave many different usable designs and sizes. These beautiful baskets are perfect for use in home and office or as a special gift.
