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. This tray is perfect for a coffee table centerpiece, as a countertop catchall, or for serving bread or your favorite dessert

 

Hope Design

The sunburst pattern on this tray 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 basket they sell increases their chance for a better life. Quality of life, community status, self-worth, and confidence are just a few of the hopeful effects these baskets 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 basket weaving ripples through the country.
