The Mugarura women basket weaving group is a self help group of lady weavers located in rural Masindi district west of Uganda. The group is behind our beautiful fair trade baskets.
Most of the basket weavers are small household farmers who rely on farming as a source of income however this has become difficult to rely on because of the climatic changes. Basket weaving has therefore become an alternative source of income to sustain their livelihood. They are able to buy food, clothes and pay school fees from the income they earn from basket weaving.
