This African woven basket is approximately 12" in diameter and 100% handmade by our artisans in Gitarama, Rwanda. The women grow their own sisal plants, extract the fibers, then hand-dye and weave them into these beautiful works of art. The sisal is woven around sweetgrass, a fragrant grass with a subtle sweetness. Each sisal Rwandan basket comes with a string attached to the back so that you can hang it on the wall. In addition to making a beautiful table display, these baskets can also be hung as art. You can combine them with other baskets or works of art to make a feature wall collage.
By purchasing this basket, you are providing a source of income for women weavers in Rwanda, which in turn helps them to raise healthy families, improve their living conditions, and better their community.
