Product Meaning & Purpose
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.
Thousand Hills Design
This basket recalls
Rwanda’s mountainous terrain. The beautiful design illustrates the mountain
ranges that cover the nation and surround the countryside with amazing views.
Often referred to as “the land of a thousand hills” Rwanda is composed of
countless mountain ranges whose steep slopes are dotted with thousands of
terraced farms that seemingly defy gravity as sure-footed farmers harvest crops
from these precipitous plots. Hidden among the hills are thriving vegetation
and vibrant wildlife, most famously the rare mountain gorillas. It’s been said that
Rwandan’s terrain offers a democratic beauty, as rich and poor alike are
blessed with incredible views of the land and cities.
