About the Neon Studio Collection:
Electricity sparks in the air in vivid, eye-squinting colors.
Our Neon Studio Collection was brought to life by our master weavers extracting all normal and mundane colors and injecting only vibrant, energetic colors-of-the-rainbow. Life is better lived with color; we can just feel the energy radiating, and our weavers agree.
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. Perfect for withstanding heat and creating the center-of-the-table-talk as you serve your hot dish.
Product Meaning &
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. This
flat trivet is perfect for withstanding heat and creating the
center-of-the-table-talk as you serve your hot dish.
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.
