Traditionally used for serving food, this basket will also make a stunning display piece. Handwoven by women in Uganda out of millet stalks, naturally dyed raffia, and sometimes local grasses.
- These beautiful baskets come from a group of women weaving in Southern Uganda. The Rwenzori mountains in the weavers' area seem a bit out of place in Africa with their snow and glacier covered peaks of close to 17,000 feet.
- Traditionally used for serving food, Rwenzori baskets have a smooth surface and feature bold, geometric designs.
- The vibrant colors come from natural dyes made from flowers, roots, leaves, and lichens grown by the weavers themselves.
