Handwoven Small Maya Wishing Basket with Lid

Notify me when this creation is available:

A small lid basket is the perfect place to store your jewelry or other keepsakes. Based on traditional patterns and handcrafted from natural fibers, this basket is sure to bring a touch of history into your home without clashing with your modern decor. Each basket is handmade by a cooperative of women in rural Uganda, made from natural local fibers such as millet straw, banana fiber and raffia. The gorgeous colors come from natural dyes, extracted from plants such as marigold, cosmos flower and omusorooro-indigo. A single basket takes days to complete, using a technique that requires patience and precision. Every hand weaves differently and every straw is its own, so each basket has unique variations and quirks. Your new statement piece is truly one of a kind and guilt free – gorgeous, fair trade and ethically sourced.
