Handwoven in Uganda 

A Collaboration with Rose & Fitzgerald 

Clean geometric lines, minimal palette. This little basket makes a handsome addition to your shelf or desk.

Not to mention, it’s packed with symbolism – in Uganda, legend has it that if you put a token for a wish inside, that wish will come true. Fingers crossed!

Meticulously handwoven by a cooperative of 150 women in the Rwenzori Mountains, each basket takes weeks to complete. Made exclusively in a fair trade environment.


  • MEASUREMENTS: 9"W x 10"H

Since each basket is handwoven, please expect some slight variation in size.


Our baskets are sturdy, strong, and flexible, made to withstand constant use. If properly cared for, your basket will live a long life.

Dust your woven basket on a regular basis, wiping with a damp cloth if necessary. No other cleaning should be necessary.

Changes in temperature and humidity may cause your basket to expand and contract, which may make securing the lid difficult at times. Be patient and wait for the weather to change or remove from areas with high humidity (like bathrooms).
