As part of our Fair Trade collection, this basket is handmade in Uganda.
Made of Raffia fibers, this blue spiral basket is handcrafted by artisans in Uganda. Raffia is used in textiles, basket-making, rope-making, garden string, construction, and roofing, making it a very versatile material. The basket is made by forming the core of each coil in banana fiber, around which raffia palm is wrapped. The fiber is threaded through the previous coil to form the basket.
Fair Trade items are purchased at fair prices from artisans in developing countries. This global movement helps put people first! When you purchase Fair Trade, you help provide income for basic living expenses, while also empowering artisans.
