Grapevine Raffia Basket

We heard it through the grapevine that there is an empty spot on your wall where this basket would be a perfect fit! 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.

HANDCRAFTED IN UGANDA

  • Raffia and banana stalk
  • Due to the handcrafted nature of our products, slight variations in color and pattern enhance authenticity.
  • Basket: 6.5D x 2H inches; Loop: 1.25L (when folded) inches
  • Loop for hanging is attached along the bottom edge of the base of basket
  • Handcrafted in Uganda

THE MAKERS

Uganda Crafts is the oldest and largest craft shop in Uganda. The organization brings a sustainable and fair income to their artisans, most of whom are either people with disabilities, widowed, or others often excluded from the global economy. They market the crafts for artisans and provide training in quality control, design and marketing. The organization also owns a retail store that provides employment for people with physical disabilities. In addition to training, employees receive health benefits, emergency loans and transportation. Uganda Crafts employs approximately 300 artisans in five workshops or cooperatives, 85 percent of them women. Ten Thousand Villages has purchased products from Uganda Crafts since 1995.
