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.
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 bold, pointed pattern conjures the full, sharp movements and brilliant costumes of East African dancers spinning to a drummer's beat. Both Rwanda and Uganda have rich traditions of celebrations that involve music and dance. The dances tell stories and pay tribute to life-giving commodities and animals.
