s lidded basket

Bwindi Weavers

This lil' hand-woven raffia and straw lidded basket can have many different jobs. Put it in the bathroom with some q-tips, place it on your bookshelf with your favorite stone inside, or even hang it in a tree with your spare key in it!

Wherever you may put it, you will always look at it and know that you have supported a sustainable and fair trade business that is employing the women from remote communities in the Bwindi Impermeable forest in Southern Uganda. Agricultural practice within the forest has been the #1 factor in diminishing the mountain gorillas natural habitat. By creating a market for the women to sell their hand woven goods, they are able to terminate excessive agricultural practice and rely on their artisan craft for income, helping save the endangered gorillas home.

Dimensions: 3" base, 4.5" height with lid, 3" height without lid
