Limited edition and genuinely unique. This basket is truly a piece of art. No two baskets are the same. We saw this basket and fell in love IMMEDIATELY!

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 baskets make perfect plant pots and bins.  However we recommend using a saucer or bowl in the bottom before you put the plant in.  This will catch any water that drains through. 

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.
