With each one-of-a-kind woven basket, bowl, coaster and tote bag, Tooro Artisan Goods honour the Ruwenzori women of Uganda who collaboratively design them. Founded in Calgary and inspired by co-creator Anna Batabe’s Ugandan heritage, Tooro Artisan Goods has created a line of decorative baskets, trays, bowls and more made by master craftswomen. Using traditional weaving methods, it can take up to 60 hours to make a single piece. Each one is made with sustainability in mind using all-natural products while beautifully combining contemporary design and cultural artistry. The name Tooro originates from a small town at the foot of the Ruwenzori mountains called Fort Portal. The locals, including Batabe’s parents at one time, refer to the town as Tooro.
