This handmade, unique basket has been created using mainly natural fibres including dyed banana leaf fibres, wood (pine and banana for basket framework) and raffia palm. Whether you use as a storage item or to decorate your home is totally up to you!

Made in Uganda by women in Uganda who suffer from Albinism, these woven baskets are more than just an ethical update for your home. Across parts of Africa, those affected by Albinism (mainly women and children) experience exclusion, stigmatization and the denial of basic rights such as education and health. Mama Mzungu have created full-time employment for 13 women affected by Albinism in Uganda, giving them a safe place to work, economic empowerment and self-reliance.

Mama Mzungu: Fighting for those affected by Albinism in Uganda Across parts of Africa, due to societal ignorance about people with Albinism, many affected experience exclusion, stigmatization and the denial of basic rights such as education and health. Broad ignorance, misbeliefs and superstitions also endanger people with Albinism’s lives. In everyday life, those affected by Albinism, particularly as women and children, are frequently treated less than human and are not considered capable of amounting to anything.
