This gorgeous oblong shaped tray has been hand-woven using traditional weaving techniques by women in Uganda. Natural and brightly dyed raffia is wrapped around bundles of banana leaf stalks to create these unique trays. By incorporating different colours in the weaving process the artists create these bright, unique patterned pieces. Perfect for decoration, holding collectables or as a serving tray.
These platters by AfriBeads are made under fair trade conditions and are made from a renewable resource. Raffia is harvested in such a way that it does not damage the tree, allowing the tree to continue to grow and be used for future harvesting.
