Banana Leaf Trays

Banana Leaf Trays


These Banana Leaf Chambered Trays are made from hand-gathered local banana leaves and stalks, and are sturdy and functional! Artisans use a specially designed, handmade needle to thread dried banana leaves around the banana stalks. 

This tray can be used to serve, store, and sort all kinds of things- feel free to be imaginative!  What about a funky little shelf, for example?  Or a fun storage place for craft supplies?  We like to use the tray to hold boxes of tea bags- it’s great for serving guests too.

The Rwandan social enterprise who made these is focused on maximizing economic opportunity for rural artisans through the development and promotion of their craft. They offer fair prices, and as well as design coaching. Rising from the horrors of genocide, artisans from all backgrounds have joined together through their art to create a better future. With their sustainable and fair income, parents are caring for the health, nutrition, and education of their children, families are building better homes, and women are raising their voices in their communities.

These treasures are hand created by our artisan partners in Rwanda, so slight variations in materials and colors will occur, which means you will get a one-of-a-kind item!
