Ugwafu & Banana Bark Tray

Regular price


An earthy toned statement tray carefully woven by hand by artisans in Tanzania.

Each tray takes 10 days to weave using locally grown ugwafu grasses, together with white threads of upcycled 'gunia' grain sacks and the dried bark of local banana trees.  

The combination of modern design and traditional weaving techniques, makes the trays versatile and sturdy while reinforcing the natural beauty of local materials. They are ideal as a serving tray or to keep belongings in a decorative way. They would also look lovely with some plants grouped together.

All orders made between the 10th - 19th of February 2023 will be dispatched on the 20th of February 2023.
