This is a handmade basket, made by Jalia in Uganda. She used banana fibers and up to 33.000 stitches to create a unique, durable product.
Jalia is 24 years old and lives in Kampala. Her children are 10 and 7 years old. Before she made baskets, she sold porridge and corn on the streets for a living. She also lets you know that her favorite food is matooke (cooked banana) and beef. 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€)
