LIMITED EDITION! ONE-OF-A-KIND

Handwoven Ugandan basket. Topped with a protective, sturdy lid.

Limited edition and genuinely unique. This basket is truly a piece of art. No two baskets are the same. Our masterful artisans saw co-owner Amy's 'Mamba Rug' design and became inspired (mambas are a species of African crocodiles).

Ethically produced using natural materials and dyes. This versatile basket has an impressive range of uses - from storage to gift baskets, plant pots, toys, décor, and more!

The minimalist yet stylish and bohemian design makes it an excellent addition to any room. Pop it in your study to calm the work vibes, or in your longue to create an earthy living space. It will look great in your bedroom too! You can't go wrong with this limited edition, Ugandan handwoven basket.

From the breath-taking country of Uganda, Africa, this beautiful basket was crafted by a talented group of artisans. Led by the head weaver, Topista, the community spends days creating each piece. Our longstanding partnership ensures a consistent income for the weavers and their families.

Our co-founder, Bee, discovered the weavers in a rural village in Uganda during a memorable visit. There she met Ruth, who leads the group, and Topista.

Ugandan baskets are famously robust and versatile. They make beautiful fruit bowls however we recommend storing soft fruits such as berries in the fridge and regularly inspecting harder fruits to make sure they have not become too soft to avoid fruit juice staining your basket. 

To clean your basket, simply wipe clean with a damp cloth or sponge, remove most of the moisture with a dry towel and leave to air dry naturally.

Avoid placing your basket in direct sunlight as this may cause some of the colours to fade.
