Wish you could create something similar in your home, but aren’t sure where to start?

Start here!

I wanted to make it super simple for anyone out there drooling over photos of basket walls to select, purchase and arrange sustainably and ethically made woven baskets – creating their very own customized basket wall decor set.

I wanted to make it so easy, in fact, I’ve created three separate wall basket decor ideas for this post.

Whether your home is Boho, Coastal – even Minimalist – there’s a set of woven basket wall decor out there with your name on it.

Aside from the beauty-factor, there’s another reason to cover your walls in woven baskets – namely, the baskets I’ve selected for this post. Each and everyone is from KAZI, an amazing brand that’s part of the organization All Across Africa, which connects talented African artisans with woven-goods-loving individuals across the globe. Read more about KAZI’s inspiring initiatives here.

You can purchase all of the basket wall art featured in this post directly from the KAZI website. But if you’re looking to add a variety of sustainable and ethical products to your order – like rugs, blankets, even clothing! – then consider purchasing KAZI’s woven goods via Made Trade.

Boho

A boho home is the perfect setting for woven basket wall decor. It’s rare that you come across an image of a bohemian-styled space that doesn’t feature woven baskets of some sort.

This entryway by Lisa Leonard illustrates how to do boho wall baskets beautifully. The contrasting, yet complimentary colours and patterns. The seemingly carefree arrangement. Plus that guitar reflected in the mirror – love, love, love it.

Colours

You can do boho pretty much anyway you want – that’s kind of the point. But if you want a somewhat unified look that also says “I’m not trying too hard,” pick one or two colours and then choose woven wall baskets that include those colours in some way – even if it’s just a dab.

Patterns

Play with patterns. Things don’t necessarily have to “match.” But again, an easy way to unify patterns is to choose similar colourways.

Coastal

Similar to bohemian-styled spaces, coastal rooms and homes have a laid back, fuss-free feel to them. However, coastal spaces tend to be slightly more polished and also draw colour and pattern inspiration from – of course – the coast!

Green With Decor does a lovely job of adding woven baskets to her coastal dining room. Kudos for creativity and having her basket wall wrap around the corner.

Colours

It’s all about the ocean, baby. So choose sand-coloured woven baskets and baskets in shades of blue.

Minimalist

Minimalism and a wall filled with woven baskets may not seem to go together – but they can! It’s all about selecting colours, patterns and – most importantly – a layout that matches the sentiment of a minimalist home.

Another way to do baskets minimalist-style is to choose only one basket and then refrain from even hanging it on the wall. It’s what Avenue Lifestyle did. And it looks both casual and cool.

Colours

What is it about a minimalist home that just screams black and off-white? Well… perhaps it’s all the black and off-white? Thankfully, baskets for wall decor come in every colour. And non-colour.

Whether your decor style is Boho, Coastal - even Minimalist - there's a set of woven basket wall decor out there with your name on it! And you can start with the Black Spotted Wall Bowl from ethical brand KAZI.

Look for baskets with straight lines and geometric shapes as opposed to waves or florals.

Size

Either create a feeling of repetition by using woven wall baskets that are the same size, or choose baskets in a few different sizes and then space them in order of smallest to largest.

Layout

The opposite of the comfortably crowded boho-layout. Instead, create a spaced out, symmetrical basket wall. Striking!

And there you have it. Woven basket wall decor – three ways!

Before you go, I’d like to leave you with a recent quote from KAZI. Because there are countless home decor brands out there. Countless brands, period. And sadly, too many of them care more about getting your money than the welfare of people and the planet.

But the power isn’t in their hands. It’s in ours. As consumers, we get to choose who we support. So why not support a brand that stands for something?

“We founded All Across Africa and KAZI on the beliefs that all lives deserve equality no matter your race or location you were born into. We started by developing peace building workshops with local leaders bridging divides in Rwanda where racism and division have also made their mark. And we don’t feel we can just stop there or focus on our work in Africa, but are opening up to learn how to be a more thoughtful and brave company that stands for and with our black brothers and sisters today and going forward.”
