These unique, authentic "soccer" balls are the perfect gift for the soccer or "football" fan in your life.

These soccer balls were initially created by Paul, an inspiring young man living in Rakai, Uganda. He perfected his skill at wrapping dried banana leaves together and around each other to make a ball in order to play soccer with his friends. 

Today - Paul works with many of his friends to hand-make these soccer balls for you! The purchase of each ball helps Paul and his friends pay their school fees and help provide for their families!

Size: Approx. 5'' in diameter

ARTIST STORY:
As a young man in Rakai, Uganda, Paul began weaving handmade soccer balls out of dried banana leaves in order to play soccer with his friends. His skill to make a quality "soccer" ball was soon recognized and now Paul and his friend create and sell these balls as a way to pay their school fees. Thank you for your continued support to the children and young adults in Rakai!
