- Our Story
This delicately textured and woven tray was made by a women’s cooperative in Uganda using locally sourced raffia plant and banana fibers. They weave together grass and banana bark using a sewing needle to achieve these incredible pieces of art.
Prior to working with this cooperative, many of the artisans worked manual labor jobs or as local vendors. It was financially difficult to support themselves and their children. Many of them have now become the primary income earners in their households. They weave in small groups, building community and mastering their trade. They can now invest in their childrens' education, increase their savings, and plan for a hopeful future.
This tray is perfect for entertaining and serving. Style as a centerpiece on your table top, coffee table, or living room ottoman. Use as ready to hang wall art and pair with other woven plates and handmade baskets. Display your bathroom accessories, scented candles, or decorative objects.
