Sourced on co-founder Bee's most recent trip to Uganda, our Uganda Craft Collection basket dishes and pots are all hand woven using traditional natural dyes, sisal and raffia straw. They are amazingly strong and durable.
No two are woven the same, so only one of each is available. The perfect unique and special gift or individual art piece.
ARTISANS & VALUES
This basket has been made using traditional hand weaving techniques by groups of talented women-weavers living in Uganda.
The sale of our baskets encourages the craft of basket weaving to continue being handed down from generation to generation and provides an alternative to poaching and farming during drought.

Ugandan baskets are famously robust and versatile. They make beautiful storage containers. If you are using it to store foodstuffs please use a plastic liner.
To clean your basket, simply wipe clean with a damp cloth or sponge, remove most of the moisture with a dry towel and leave to air dry naturally.
Avoid placing your basket in direct sunlight as this may cause some of the colours to fade.
