MEET THE ARTISAN

Uganda

Our Weaving Partners from Kasese

The village of Kasese is found north of Lake George in the mountainous region of Western Uganda. This area is home to a collective of women who weave these intricate baskets in the hopes of overcoming poverty in the region.

The weavers of Kasese, these resilient and talented women, create baskets that feature intricate, geometric designs in a style that is all their own. The skills they use are ancient, handed down from one generation to the next. Calling on their ancestors for their knowledge and skills, these women have been creating a new future for themselves and their families.

Located in an area with few opportunities for employment, these women are determined to provide for their community, and the profits from the sale of these baskets go towards school fees for their children and food for their families. This entire community flourishes because of their shared appreciation for nature and heritage – and all of the many blessings that come with that appreciation.
