The weavers use raffia  and banana stalk locally known as “bukeddo”to when creating the coiled woven baskets. Raffia is a light fibre that is removed from a long palm-like leaf usually grown in the forests and the bukeddo is harvested from the banana plantations. Raffia ‘s length makes it an ideal material for basket weaving. Raffia can be dyed into almost any color.

This double weave, comes in two sizes only 35 and 40 cm's(circumference at its widest point)
