The Batwa people are known as “The Keepers of the Forest” because they have inhabited the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest for over 60,000 years. The women who weave these baskets support themselves entirely by their craft.
Batwa weavers in this area use natural dyes and local plants to create diverse baskets such as small wishing baskets and large cargo baskets.
Merry Christmas to you and your family, and I'm grateful for the gift of partnering with you this year!
