Care Instructions:

Cleaning the handmade products - Made of natural fibers and grass; do not submerge in water. If necessary, use a damp cloth to wipe or spot clean the basket. After serving bread or other dried foods, turn the product upside down and shake and tap to release crumbs and residue. Avoid using chemicals or detergents.

Sun and fading - Due to being all natural fibers, keep dyed products out of direct sunlight for long periods of time to avoid natural fading. All natural products with little or no coloring do well in direct sunlight.

Avoid moisture or temperate changes when possible - If products are being stored for more than 2 weeks, please keep in a temperature controlled environment, elevated off of a concrete floor to avoid fluctuating cold and warm temperatures that could create mold.


Meaning & Purpose:

These delicately textured and handcrafted chargers were made by groups of women in intimate communities across Uganda. They use the raffia plant and sweet grass to weave them together.

Gift of kindness

A friend and I came across this charger in a market in New York City. We spent the day together laughing and enjoying one another’s company. My friend loved the charger when she saw it in the market, so I knew It would be the perfect gift for Christmas.She loved it and was so. Surprised I remembered. Thank you
