At NoveBluesky, one of the materials we are using is palmleaves aka ensansa. The palm leaves are collected, dried and in most cases dyed. Out of the leaves you weave a braid, with 4-16 leaves. When the braids are sown together they can be transformed into different items like bags, hats and rugs.
It is a very common technique that most Ugandan ladies master. I´m proud to say I´m now one of them!
