Ugandan Woven Raffia and
Palm Stalk Baskets

  • These bold, beautifully crafted baskets are made by weaving banana palm leaf stalks and raffia strips dyed with natural plant dyes.

    The baskets are used in East Africa for the storage and serving of food, and they look gorgeous when hung on the wall or displayed decoratively on the tabletop.

    Measures 10"D. Colors and patterns will vary.

  • These baskets are made by a very remote group of artisans who go by the name of Taste of Turkuna. Their baskets are made with the help of a Catholic outreach program who helps to provide medical services, education, clean drinking water, human rights advocacy, and improved agriculture.
