One of a Kind Medium Fruit Basket in pink, green, yellow and natural raffia. Maadili Collective commits to purchasing One of a Kind baskets from our artisans throughout the year. The weavers are given complete artistic freedom to create new inspiring designs in a variety of colors.
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.
