This gorgeous handmade basket from Uganda is a true work of art. Use as exquisite accent decor for any tabletop or as eye-catching wall decor. A must have for every home enthusiast or someone looking to give a personalized hostess gift for the holidays. You can also pair with other wall paintings or baskets.

There is a hand-stitched loop on the back of each basket for ready to hang wall art. These delicately textured and woven baskets were made by groups of women in intimate communities across Uganda in an ethical, fair trade environment. They use the raffia plant and banana fibers to weave them together.
Meaning & Purpose: Conclilide Kabasinga, a local weaver, describes her success journey with KAZI and the confidence and work ethic women weavers have in their society: “I didn't let being a woman stop me from succeeding in life... women are responsible and spend to improve daily life as well as society. We are good at communicating and quick to understand every situation. This is why I am so grateful for KAZI, because I see them giving women a chance to succeed.”
