The design is among the most intricate, demonstrating the very advanced skill of the women who make these in Uganda, near the Ruwenzori Mountains.

We think these are the most beautiful and finest quality baskets we have ever seen, reflecting the unbelievable ingenuity of these amazing Ugandan artisans. Locally available natural dyes are used to create the vibrant colors which contribute to the beauty of these baskets
