We've never seen a more sunny and chic table top trivet that protects your table and creates a centrepiece that takes the heat from pots and bowls.

Made with all natural fibers by hand in Uganda it also is eco-conscious and makes an impact. Could it get any better than that?

Great as an exquisite center piece to any tabletop or as eye-catching wall decor. A must have for every home decor enthusiast or someone looking to give a personalized hostess gift for birthdays or weddings. You can also pair with other wall paintings or baskets.

 

 

These delicately textured and woven chargers + placemats were made by groups of women in small cooperatives across rural areas of Uganda in an ethical, fair trade environment. They weave together grass and raffia using a sewing needle to achieve these incredible pieces of art. There is a hand-stitched loop on the back of each basket as ready to hang wall art.

 

From Swahili, meaning “employment jobs, source of income” KAZI’s mission is to create jobs and markets to alleviate poverty in Africa, empowering artisans to weave a better story for themselves. Baskets, plates + bowls are not only stunning table centrepieces but also do good. Made of organic dyed raffia + sweetgrass, each piece is carefully designed and made. Ideal for keys, masks, fruit, or simply being there themselves as art.
