The bold colors, striped design, and extra roomy nature of this basket, which includes convenient handles, make it a beautiful storage solution.
A large cooperative of women in a rural mountain village in Western Uganda weaves each basket by hand over several weeks. They gather local palm and banana leaves, dry them, hand-dye the colors, and weave each coil into our design using only their hands and a simple needle. 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 expand and contract slightly. 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!
