Round Raffia Basket | BLUE BURST
Traditional “rippling star” pattern in dark blue and cream forms this Ugandan basket. The interior core of each coil is banana fiber, around which raffia palm is wrapped. With each wrapping, the fiber is threaded through the previous coil to form the basket. The artisans who make this basket live amidst some of the worst poverty in the world. Basket-making is their most marketable skill.
