The stories of these baskets are more than meets the eye. Mothers have been passing the traditional practice of weaving down to their daughters for centuries. They are more than baskets. They are sources of pride for an entire nation, and in the livelihoods of the women in Ugandan communities. This basket was intricately handcrafted with raffia, evocating natural and organic aesthetics.
With an oval shape and handles, the raffia basket can be used for many purposes, including, as a bread basket, a place to store your wooden kitchen spoons or utensils, as a fruit bowl, electronic device storage, or, perhaps, to store art supplies. Meaningfully and purposefully designed.
