Hand-woven using locally sourced palm and banana leaves, this basket was designed with beauty and function in mind. Throw on the lid to keep pretty much anything you want out-of-sight—laundry, toys in the nursery, or cozy throws. The bold colors, striped design and extra roomy nature of the basket, which includes convenient handles, make it a unique storage solution packing a modern punch.
Each basket is made by a large cooperative of women in a rural mountain village in Western Uganda. Because a different woman weaves each basket by hand over the course of several weeks, no two are completely alike—resulting in a true one-of-a-kind piece that you’ll enjoy for years to come.
Keep the basket in dry, cool areas, and dust regularly with a soft cloth. The dye may fade slightly over time, especially if kept in an area with direct sunlight, but with proper care, it should remain beautiful and vibrant for years to come.
Due to the use of natural materials, the basket can be sensitive to temperature and humidity changes. This could potentially cause it to slightly expand and contract, which can make securing or removing the lid slightly difficult. If this happens, remove the basket from high-humidity areas and give it a day or two. We assure you, the basket will return to its intended shape and size soon!
