Just as the Mountains of the Moon in Uganda contains the most varied vibrant mountain scenery from tropical rainforest, through alpine valleys to the glaciers, these lovely baskets feature vibrantly dyed raffia coiled over banana stalks. This functional art can be displayed on the wall with its raffia loop or put to use on the tabletop.

Uganda Crafts 2000 Limited, a member of the International Fair Trade Association teaches basic handcrafting skills to rural & urban women and provides income opportunities for the marginalised and disadvantaged: people with disabilities, widows, orphans, single mothers, women with minimal education, and people living with HIV. They handcraft baskets using natural raffia, some with natural dyes, wrapped over coils of banana leaf stems.
