The Fair Trade Bulawayo Garlic Gourd is made from handwoven Ilala palm.
We are proud to be distributing these African Fair Trade Gourd Baskets. All baskets are woven in an ancient traditional manner by Ndebele women.
The weaving tradition is carried through generations when women gather under a tree to discuss the issues of the day and to share and solve problems. Children play nearby and try their hand at weaving.
Ndebele women are often the breadwinner of their extended family. In rural Africa, basket weaving is done in between other household chores. The money received for basket-weaving means a cash income which results in greater independence and empowerment for the Ndebele women.
The baskets are hand-crafted, no templates or moulds are used, each basket is therefore unique. The hand-made element is evident and is celebrated. Please be aware that irregularities and creative inputs are encouraged and no two baskets are alike.

Humidity causes mould to grow. Limited airflow and moisture create a microclimate for mould to develop. In some cases, mould will begin growing on furniture, clothing and other contents within the home.
In instances when this occurs, it is not an inherent fault of the furniture, clothing and other contents; rather, humidity or dampness in the air can supply enough moisture for mould growth on any surface. Mould can occur anywhere, and humid climates provide the optimal conditions for the fungi to grow and thrive on any surface.
Every Uniqwa piece has a story…
Our collections are mostly individually hand-made pieces. As most of our products are made from natural materials, texture, colour, and pattern may vary from piece to piece. Reclaimed timbers, naturally weathered materials and off-cuts otherwise discarded are frequently part of Uniqwa design features.
Natural splitting, cracking, and loss of natural oils may occur and form part of the characteristics and beauty of Uniqwa products. These are not viewed as imperfections or faults but as part of timber's natural life and beauty.
We believe the result of using natural materials and hand-crafted elements is a testament to the unique qualities found in materials originating from nature.
As every monitor displays different colour tones, the colour of pictures on our website and social media cannot be taken as a true colour indication of the actual products. Some product tones may appear to vary from catalogue or website images.
