One of a Kind Medium Fruit Basket in green, yellow, navy 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.
