Description

In Uganda, colored baskets are traditionally used for gift giving to friends and relatives for holidays and special events. Weavers wrap raffia palm around a core of banana leaf fiber to form each coil. With each wrapping, the fiber is threaded through the previous coil to form the basket. After coiling raffia around the banana stems, artisans use raffia to cover 3 or 4 coils across, then dyed palm leaves are used to make a design in the basket.
