Women from Eastern Kenya from the Akamba tribe in Kitui and also from the village called Kasue, hand make these “Kiondo Baskets” which take 1-3 weeks to make, depending on the size and season. The season matters because women participate widely in farm chores which means that weaving is done in the evening or during the dry season.
