Baskets from Uganda

Rwenzori bowls and baskets are traditionally used for serving food, and are woven from discarded Millet stalks, naturally dyed raffia and sometimes local grasses. The natural portions are dried millet leaves. The vibrant natural dyes used on the raffia for these tightly woven baskets come from flowers, roots, leaves and lichens grown by the weavers themselves.
