This basket is hand-woven by women working with Uganda Crafts, an artisan group that provides single mothers widowed by the HIV/AIDS epidemic the opportunity to earn income weaving at home. Made from raffia and banana stalk with a loop for hanging attached along the bottom edge of the base of basket. Due to the handcrafted nature of our products, slight variations in color and pattern enhance authenticity.
