This conical basket by Garnbaladj Nabegeyo has been coiled and is made with undyed and dyed pandanus. It retains string handles but has a flat bottom, which is an influence from missionary times to encourage the sale of works to Europeans.

Garnbaladj was taught by her mother to make baskets. In addition to working in classical styles and techniques she also experiments with open coiling techniques. She has participated in several String World Festivals, has provided consultation to museums and is a strong advocate of fibre arts.
