PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Designer:
ALL ACROSS AFRICA

Intricately woven.  Craftswomen in Rwanda use timeless tradition to weave carefully dyed sisal fibers and sweet grass to make stunning one of a kind pieces rich in cultural meaning and purpose.  They are just the right size for a wall hanging or catch all for jewelry, keys, coins or nuts. 

Baskets carry their own symbolism in Rwanda. Because friends give them to celebrate major life events such as weddings, births and graduations, baskets are proudly displayed as symbols of wealth of friends, family and life. The three-line pattern on this basket is known as the "unity" design and symbolizes the three ethnic groups that divided Rwanda in 1994, but who now work together to heal wounds from the past. Measures 2 x 6 in.
