This product is SOLD OUT.


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 hot plate, centerpiece or wall hanging. The circular pattern on this basket symbolizes the cycle of rebirth, in which rain plays a vital role. East Africa has two rainy seasons, each lasting two to three months. Because the majority of East Africa’s people rely on agriculture to survive, they trust that rain will come to cultivate the seeds they sow, and reward their hard work by bringing life and nourishment to people, animals and plants. Thus the rain pattern represents the cleansing of one life stage and hope in the promise of growth. Measures approximately 9 in. diameter.
