We are thrilled to be partnering with two incredible weaving groups in Uganda, whose distinctive and bright raffia basketry brings an influx of new texture and colour to The Basket Room.
From Uganda you can now purchase raffia and banana fibre wine and utensil baskets, as well as monchrome, natural and brightly coloured wall baskets, crafted by former child-soldiers and single mothers who have lived through Uganda’s twenty-year war with the LRA.
We are also delighted to be selling a small collection of exquisite fringed hangers designed by Nina Howard of FLOC. These hanging pieces are woven from raffia and sweetgrass by groups of women in small cooperatives across rural areas of Uganda.
