Make an increased impact with a large wall basket! The larger version of the traditional size adds variation to your lovely wall display. This large statement basket, in rich colors of Savannah Red, Camel Ride, Bullfrog, Midnight and Sparkling Lake, is part of the Spring/Summer 2021 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.
Hanging loop on back allows basket to be wall decor in addition to tabletop use
Weavers hand make each basket from home while tending to other household duties. Baskets can take days to weeks to complete with artists weaving 3 or so hours per day while balancing other responsibilities.
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.
