White Beaded Dots Nomadic Camel Milking Baskets


These useful rare baskets are woven by Samburu and Rendille women in remote northern Kenya. Called "nomadic baskets," the baskets are styled for the modern home but based on traditional designs used for the storage of camel's milk.

Nomadic baskets are sold in three useful nesting sizes and are adorned with white beads

Because these baskets are handcrafted, each will vary slightly

Each basket is tightly knit and is designed to last a lifetime
