Fair Trade, handmade tray from Uganda. This black + natural contemporary tray is perfect addition to your dining table centerpiece, on your coffee table to hold remotes and necessities, or add to a basket wall with an already woven loop on the back!
Measures approximately 15" Diameter, 3.5" - 4" Tall.
Each basket is handmade, so slight variance in color + designwill occur- that's part of the beauty!
These baskets are 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.
The designs, materials, and weaving techniques are traditional. However, the creative weavers use color, pattern and complexity to give the baskets a modern feel.
