Made in an ethical, fair trade environment. Handwoven by a cooperative of women located in Rwanda, this one of a kind piece takes a couple of days to complete. Read the story..
Each basket tells a story. The stories of the Rwandan women who have intricately handcrafted these baskets from raffia, a fiber obtained from the leaves of the raffia palm.
The intricate designs and flawless work of an experienced weaver is never the result of luck. Rather, Rwandan women owe their skills to the women before them who passed on the knowledge from generation to generation—mother to daughter, grandmother to child.
Each piece is unique, culturally and traditionally inspired, and handwoven in intimate Rwandan communities. With differing patterns and colors, one or more of these baskets will make a globally conscious and stylistic addition to your home.
Our baskets can be used as a produce bowl, centerpiece, or even a place to display books on your coffee table. Meaningfully and purposefully designed, each basket has a woven loop that allows you to hang it up on the wall as a decorative piece.
All products are made by hand with love and vary slightly in color and size.
A hand-stitched loop is on the back of each Rwanda basket so you can instantly enjoy this piece of ready to hang wall art.
Although it is small, it's function and uniqueness is mighty!
