Product Description:

Looking for stylish storage ideas? With their intricate traditional designs, these handwoven baskets are both remarkably durable and stylish. The mix of materials, unusual pattern, and earthy palette add a stunning statement to any room.

These grass-woven baskets have been handmade by a group of women in a rural community bordering Bwindi Impenetrable National Park in southwest Uganda.

All of the colours that you see in these baskets are made with natural and sustainable dyes using traditional knowledge of herbs. Two different types of grass are used, one to give structure and one for the detail.

The result is these amazing and practical baskets and pots that would add style equally to a dressing table, bookshelf or side table.

Beautiful things should belong to beautiful souls.” Muriel Barbery 

These ethnic African baskets certainly are beautiful, ethical and perfect for those who appreciate art. So, make sure to buy one (or more!) if you would like something special in your home or a charming gift for your loved ones.

As all baskets are handmade, please expect some differences in sizing and patterns. 

Size
Small: 18cm high (including lid), 10cm diameter at base
Medium: 20cm high (including lid), 12cm diameter at base
Large: 25cm high (including lid), 19cm diameter at base

Care Instructions:

  • Our baskets are sturdy, strong, and flexible, made to withstand constant use. If properly cared for, your basket will live a long life.

  • Dust your woven basket on a regular basis, wiping with a damp cloth if necessary. No other cleaning should be necessary.

  • Changes in temperature and humidity may cause your basket to expand and contract, which may make securing the lid difficult at times. Be patient and wait for the weather to change or remove from areas with high humidity (like bathrooms).
