Overview:

Intricately woven.  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 key holder, catch-all, desk-top organizer or cute accent wall hanging.

 

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.

 

Dancer Design

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.
