BINDUKA BASKET PLANTER

Liven up a dim corner with this gorgeous one-of-a-kind planter. This stunning statement piece is handwoven using traditional techniques, each planter taking days to complete. It's made from ethically sourced local fibers like millet straw, banana fiber and raffia. Its vibrant colors come from natural dyes extracted from plants like marigold, cosmos flower and omusorooro-indigo. The bold pattern builds on traditional designs, and the planters are crafted by a cooperative of women in rural Uganda. Every knot and loop is expertly made by skilled hands, using techniques that require patience and precision. As your planter is made by hand from natural fibers, it will have slight variations and quirks that make it uniquely yours. This piece comes with a guilt-free conscience, too: it's ethically sourced and fair trade.
