A beautiful basket for your wall or table. The black thread design adds a pop of colour, reinforcing the natural beauty of local materials. Shaped like a shallow bowl with a loop on the back for mounting, this wall basket takes 4 days to complete and embodies the unique person story of it's maker. Burundian women who recently returned home after having spent several years living in refugee camps in Tanzania, combine traditional weaving techniques with modern design. White threads from 'gunia' grain sacks are upcycled and intricately woven into ugwafu grasses by the artisan women. The name of this particular design symbolises 'Urugendo', the 'journey' all refugees make to the camp - most fleeing their homes at night, braving the several day trek to Tanzania on foot crossing forests, rivers and mountains. A beautiful and meaningful way to add style to your home. This wall basket is part of the MADE51 Collection, the UN High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR)'s global brand of refugee made products. Our artisan partner WomenCraft continues to provide these women with weaving opportunities, enabling them to maintain their livelihood in their home communities. Natural ugwafu (local grass), re-purposed grain sacks & cotton thread
