Buwambo Natural Butterfly Basket

Dyed and natural raffia is skillfully wrapped around tightly coiled banana leaf fibers to create this soft, dense basket, dynamically pattered for rich depth and texture. Also features palm leaf detail, woven between raffia in a checkered design inspired by a butterfly's wing. Each is crafted in central Uganda by the Buwambo Women's Group, which provides artisans (most single mothers) the opportunity to work from home to earn income and education for their families. 2 1/2"h x 11 1/2"dia

Great Gift
  |  By
I bought this as a gift for a friend of mine, and she was very pleased with the basket she received. We felt quite comfortable sending her this basket based only on the picture and description in the catalogue because we have received such wonderful baskets that we ordered for ourselves that we knew she would be delighted. It is an added bonus that these purchases help to encourage the artists to use their skills to support themselves and their families.
