Ugandan weavers make beautiful baskets using color dyed raffia palm leaves around a coil of bukedo. Bukedo is the local Ugandan term for banana leaf stalks. Banana leaf stalks are pulled apart into thin long strips, dried, bundled into coils and wrapped with raffia palm. During the weaving process, weavers must skillfully add bukedo as they weave to keep the coil shape and size consistent. All materials used in the weaving process are locally sourced and renewable, making the baskets sustainable. These baskets are made by a womens cooperative based in Kampala, Uganda.
