This is a handmade basket, made by Fiona in Uganda. She used banana fibers and up to 33.000 stitches to create a unique, durable product.
Fiona is 19 years old and lives in Kampala. Her child is 3 years old. Before she made baskets, she sold soda on the streets for a living. She also lets you know that her favorite food is matooke (cooked banana) and fish. With the sale of this basket, she will be able to pay for an entire month of her family's food or rent.

Each basket takes about 10 days to make and each girl is making 4 baskets a month. So, they will not be ready to ship from Uganda until around September.
We will ship the baskets to Germany in bulk and won't charge the customer for that. Shipping costs will be counted from Germany to the final destination. We don't know exactly what the shipping cost will be but we are guessing around $10 (9€)
