All Across Africa seeks to empower citizens of underprivileged and rural African communities by helping them establish rewarding careers as artisans. Each basket is woven by talented artisans in Uganda and Rwanda, where the very skill is a product of tradition passed down from mother to child. The traditional styles, shapes, and designs hold symbolism defined in the history of the craft.
