They are constructed using Raffia and banana stalk locally known as “bukeddo” to create these coiled woven baskets. Raffia is a light fiber that is removed from a long palm-like leaf usually grown in the forests and the bukeddo is harvested from the banana plantations. Due to the length of Raffia‘s it is an ideal material for basket weaving and can be dyed into almost any color.
Baskets made with love and care
The design of the basket is created by weaving with different colours. Dyes are obtained from natural sources like roots, barks, fruit and berries, leaves, clay, dung or various combinations of the above.
