Women from Uganda use raffia to create their coiled woven baskets. Raffia is a light fibre that is removed from the rear of a long palm like leaf. Its length makes it an ideal material for basket weaving. Raffia can be dyed into almost any colour so many of the designs in this catalogue can be altered and updated to match the most up to date trends in home decoration.
We regularly make raffia baskets with top diameters of six inches, nine inches, eleven inches, twelve inches, thirteen inches, thirteen and half, fourteen inches and fifteen inches. Some intricate designs may be limited to one or two sizes to retain the motifs while others can be ordered in any size.
