Checkered Blossom Round Lidded Basket

The perfect round lidded basket to hold your dearest treasures.

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.
