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.
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.
