Coiling its way into your heart is the classic Ugandan basket! The basket is a perfect gift which can be highly functional or purely decorative.    

Most of the baskets are made from a local fibre taken from a type of palm leaf called raffia which is wrapped around long strips of banana leaf stems.  Artisans also make a range of baskets that use a combination of banana fibre (which comes from the bark of the banana tree) and raffia wrapped over coils of banana leaf stems.  Our Nubian baskets are made from an imported material called Disi which is sewn around coils of papyrus or grass. 

Basket weaving is carried out from the woman’s home in between her other domestic duties.  The knowledge on how to weave has been mostly passed down from generation to generation.

Uganda Crafts 2000 proudly exports quality raffia, banana fibre and Nubian baskets and basketry to the US and Canada. We are ready to change colours and customise your order.
