Story

A rich and complex history surrounds the techniques used to make these unique cushions from Uganda. The plaited palm leaf is made from sustainable harvesting of fiber from the enkindukindu trees, and the bark cloth is made by 9th generation bark cloth makers in Bukcmansimbi. Lesli from Mekeka designs works closely with Florence and her team in Bisanje to weave their plaited palm leaf entirely by hand and the Ugandan cotton loom back is woven by Grace and her team.

A huge amount of work has gone into making these cushions we are so grateful to have their beautiful work here in New Zealand.
