Handwoven in Uganda
With their intricate traditional design, this handwoven basket is both remarkably durable and stylish. The mix of materials, graphic pattern, and stark palette add a stunning statement to any room.
The “wishing basket” lid, of native Ugandan style, makes it a versatile storage space. Leave off the lid for a unique planter or umbrella holder in your entryway; or close it up to stow away an assortment of items.
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.
- MEASUREMENTS: 11"W x 22"H (14"H without lid)
- MATERIALS: Handwoven palm and banana leaves
- COLORS: Natural with hand-dyed black accents
- ORIGIN: Uganda
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).

Well made and perfect size
I was looking for something made of natural material to put in a small powder room. The scale and design of this basket was perfect. When I want to change things up, I am sure I can find many other places around the house for it. It was out of stock and when it was available, I snatched one up right away.
I admired this basket for many months before I went ahead and ordered. The price tag was the primary thing holding me back. I am so happy I ordered though! It is a beautiful basket and a decent size. I keep extra rolls of toilet paper in mine in an upstairs hallway (I can fit at least 6-7 rolls in it). No regrets and well worth the investment.
