Natural tones and ancient techniques blend to form this surprisingly modernistic lid basket. Based on traditional patterns and handcrafted from natural fibers, it's 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 milet straw, banana fiber and raffia. The gorgeous colors come from natural plant dyes, locally and sustainably sourced. With this on your table, you have something no one else has. A single basket takes days to complete, and as every hand weaves differently and every straw is its own, 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.
