Uru Wall Basket - Blue

Regular price £46.00

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 personal 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 coloured threads add a pop of colour, reinforcing the natural beauty of local materials.

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.

QÄSA QÄSA will be closed until the 27th of August. All orders made will be shipped once they reopen.
