Twining uses two types of material as well – the warp and the weft. The warp makes the base and comes out like the spokes of a wheel. The weft is wrapped around these spokes to create the basket. When the basket is finished the warp that sticks out the top is either turned under of cut off. A twined basket can take hours to months to complete.

HAND CARVED WOODEN GIRAFFE MASK BY JEDANDO HANDICRAFTS
orking with more than 100 individual carvers in Machakos, Kenya, Jedando Modern Handicrafts markets African handicrafts primarily made of wood and bone worldwide. Carving is a tradition in Kenya with the children learning the craft from their parents.
Carved by hand using only rudimentary hand tools, olive wood bowls, salad serving sets, and animal-shaped napkin rings take shape from pieces of olive wood, mahogany, and mpingo, or “African Ebony.”
An integral part of the organization’s function is to educate the craftspeople on the need for reforestation to enable the products to be available for years to come and offer a sustainable income for generations.
While wood carving provides the major income for many in the Machakos area, other craftspeople earn a living by further enhancing the products including painting the napkin rings and carving discarded animal bone for the handles of salad serving sets.
Often the bone is “batiked” by placing wax on the white bone and dipping the bone a dark brown/black dye, resulting in patterns African mud cloth designs.
