Regular price $40.00 Sale

Fair Trade, handmade basket from Uganda. This charger is hand woven by wrapping colorfully dyed palm raffia around a coil of banana leaf stalks. The large banana leaf stalks are pulled apart into long, thin strips, then dried, and finally bundled into coils and wrapped with the raffia. Beautiful coloring and texture that will add interest to any space. Hang on the wall as art, display on a shelf, or use on your tabletop.

 

Measures approximately 14" Diameter, 1"Tall. 

 

Each basket is handmade, so slight variance in color + design will occur- that's part of the beauty!


The designs, materials, and weaving techniques are traditional. However, the creative weavers use color, pattern and complexity to give the baskets a modern feel.
