Uganda Bukedo & Raffia Bowls

Bukedo & Raffia Bowls | Uganda Baskets | Buy Fair Trade African baskets at basketsofafrica.com

Weavers construct these baskets by wrapping colorfully dyed palm raffia around a coil of bukedo, the local term in Uganda for banana leaf stalks. The large banana leaf stalks are pulled apart into long, thin strips, then dried, and then bundled into coils and wrapped with raffia.
