I was delighted to receive these photos from the basketmakers of Rubona in Uganda. They show how proficient the dyers have become in using their native indigo plants to achieve a range of blues. I am delighted this has been such a success.

For more information, see my earlier posts: “A natural dyeing project in Uganda” and “More about the Uganda project” (Both under “Diary and News”)

    My grandma made these kinds of baskets till the time of her death at 103. Some of them have the most detailed intricate designs. I’m glad to see a lot of color being introduced into them.
