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.
