Chevron Celebration Basket

$ 30.00 $ 58.00

Handwoven in Rwanda by craftswomen using a timeless tradition, the organically dyed sisal fibers and sweetgrass make this beautiful basket. Perfect for a countertop catch-all, fruit or bread basket, the color and pattern make the basket equally as eye-catching as useful. So beautiful, the baskets make for wonderful wall displays as well and come with attached loop to make for easy hanging.

  • The baskets are made by hand and vary slightly in color and size. Each piece is one of a kind.
  • 12" x 8" 

Baskets hold a very special place in Rwandan culture. The typical gift for special occasions such as birthday, graduations and weddings, baskets are proudly displayed in homes to showcase the love of friends and family that have made such offerings. Quality of life, community status, self-worth and confidence are just a few of the hopeful effects your purchase of these baskets brings.  With the income the weavers receive, they are able to open bank accounts, start businesses and even hire other workers.
