This deep basket was created by weavers living in the Nkuringo Gorilla Camp in a very remote portion of the Virunga mountain region, on the border of the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest. Natural dyes are used to color the local raffia palm and grasses used by the weavers. This basket is finely woven using a coil stitch and wrap technique. The Batwa 'pygmy' use these baskets to store and carry goods.
You will receive the exact basket pictured above. This basket is a fair trade product and comes with information on the weaver.
