Rwenzori Bowl – 16.5″ Across
Rwenzori Bowl – 30095
Approximately 16.5″ Across x 2.5″ Tall
These beautiful baskets come from a group of women weaving in Southern Uganda. The Rwenzori mountains in the weaver’s area seem a bit out of place in Africa with their snow and glacier covered peaks of close to 17,000 feet.
Traditionally used for serving food, baskets are woven from discarded Millet stalks, naturally dyed raffia and sometimes local grasses. The natural portions are dried millet leaves. The vibrant natural dyes used on the raffia for these tightly woven baskets come from flowers, roots, leaves and lichens grown by the weavers themselves.
Basket colors may vary slightly, as this is a one of a kind handmade item.
