Fair Trade, handwoven base charger from Uganda. Beautiful geometric pattern that will add interest to any space. These chargers are perfect to hang on the wall as art - layered in your favorite basket collage, use as your table centerpiece, use as a placemat, or display on a shelf.
Measures approximately 14" Diameter, .25" Tall
Each charger is handmade, so slight variance in color + design will 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.
