12′ Bukedo & Raffia Coil Weave Bowl
These bowls are delicately handmade by artisans in Uganda using the traditional coil weave technique, tightly wrapping smooth raffia over coils of bukedo (banana leaf) stalks. They are popular as a wall decor, table accessory or propped up on a shelf. Mix and match styles to compliment an interior with soft, earthy tones or provide pop of colour to brighten up a room. A loop on the back of the basket helps with hanging.
Dimensions: 30 cm (Diameter)
Bukedo is the local term in Uganda for banana leaf stalks. Along with raffia that comes from palm trees, these materials are renewable, plentiful resources. The mission of this weaving group is to support as many other women as possible through the promotion of their handcrafts.
