Boasting linear, geometric designs in black, light aqua, peach and mustard yellow, this stylish wall platter is handcrafted in the Gulu region of Uganda. The weavers in this group are all former child-soldiers and single mothers who have lived through Uganda’s twenty-year war with the LRA. These artisans have been trained in jewellery-making and basket weaving, the latter of which is now their main income stream.

Woven from raffia palms and banana fibres, these woven wall baskets are all a little different to one another, and will bring gorgeous texture and character to any wall space.  These shallow woven baskets can also be used for fruit and bread, or for displaying jewellery, soaps or hand towels. Please note that as with all handmade basketry, designs might differ slightly from the products pictured.

About the designer…

The Basket Room creates beautiful collections of handwoven, decorative storage baskets for the home. Woven with stunning colours & unique patterns, we work with small craft collectives in Africa to bring you ethical, stylish accessories with a story. They bring together all the values of fair trade, partnering with cooperatives in Africa that helps women to support their families more comfortably, since subsistence farming alone often fails to meet the family’s needs, particularly in the dry season. By purchasing one of these baskets you actively support these weavers’ livelihoods, and a commitment to empowering women in developing countries.
