Whether you are using them as a centerpiece on your dining room table or letting them shine as a piece of decor, these baskets will add a sophisticated touch to any room.

The women of Kasese weave baskets that feature intricate, geometric designs. The skills they use are ancient, and the community as a whole thrives because of a shared appreciation and reverence for nature and all of its many blessings.
