This Raffia bowl 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 gorgeous bowls. By incorporating different colours in the weaving process the artists create these bright, unique patterned pieces. Traditionally these baskets are used for serving food, however they look great as a unique decorative piece either on a table, in a shelf or hung on a wall. Each basket comes with a loop to help with hanging.
These baskets 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.
