|African Basket - Uganda - Banded Weave Bowl - 14 Inches Across - #UR6714|
|Approximately 14 - 15" Across x 3 - 4" Tall|
For this type of basket, multiple grass coils are wrapped with raffia in a complicated weaving style that results in innovative patterns.
- Although each basket is uniquely handwoven and thus varies slightly, you will receive a basket that looks very close to this photo.
- Bukedo is the local term in Uganda for banana leaf stalks. Along with raffia that comes from palm trees, these materials are renewable, plentiful resources.
- The mission of this weaving group is to support as many other women as possible through the promotion of their handcrafts.
- Traditionally used for serving food, they are created by tightly wrapping smooth raffia over coils of bukedo stalks.
- They look great mounted on a wall, propped up on a shelf, or even sitting on a table.
