These coiled woven basket are created by using raffia and banana stalk locally known as “bukeddo”. Bukeddo is harvested from the banana plantations, whilst Raffia is a light fibre that is removed from a long palm-like leaf usually grown in the forests. Raffia ‘s length makes it an ideal material for basket weaving and can be dyed into almost any color. It will take 2 and half days to make one 40 cm basket.
This Basket style comes in three sizes. 25-35 and 40 cm's, please note this measurement is the circumference at its widest point!
