Both versatile and noticeable, the bucket basket can be used to hold rubbish in the bathroom, umbrellas at the front door or potted plants in any room. This basket is strong, durable and thoughtfully woven in the rich seasonal colors of our Fall/Winter 2022 Gather Collection.
Handcrafted by women artisans from the Batoro tribe living in the very rural mountains of Western Uganda. These weavers are a part of a cooperative that provides training to single mothers, widows and other marginalized women who are subsistence farmers and weave baskets to provide additional income.
Made from all natural, sustainably sourced raffia and banana fibers.
Unique, bold mix of natural and AZO free dyes - Natural dyes are made from various plant materials grown in artisan’s villages. The women grow, harvest and make all the natural dyes which take a great deal of knowledge and skill to produce.
The hand-dyed raffia is twisted and wrapped around coils of banana fibers, creating structure and intricate designs.
No two baskets are identical - there will be slight variations in size and color from the one shown due to the handmade nature of each product. Each basket is both special and unique.
