Handwoven in Uganda
This basket is packed with symbolism. In Uganda, legend has it that if you put a token for a wish inside, that wish will come true. These tokens can be anything – from pebbles outside a sweetheart’s hut to herbs from a healer to cure an illness.
The clean geometric lines, vibrant colors, and story behind the design make this basket a beautiful gift. To add an extra special touch, give with a note inside that represents your wish for the recipient.
Meticulously handwoven by a cooperative of twenty women, tucked away in the Rwenzori Mountains, each basket takes weeks to complete. Made exclusively in a fair trade environment.

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).
