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 to be used as a center piece, fruit basket or wall hanging. The sunburst pattern on this trivet is known as the “hope” design. Reflected on the Rwandan flag, this sunburst image stands for the country’s collective hope for a new dawn and brighter future. This design means a lot to the weavers we partner with, as each trivet they sell increases their chances for a better life. Quality of life, community status, self-worth and confidence are just a few of the hopeful effects these trivets bring. With the income the weavers receive, they are able to open bank accounts, start businesses and even hire other workers. The effect from the production and income of weaving ripples through the country. Measures 9 in. diameter.
