Rwanda Peace Basket: XLarge
Rwanda Peace Baskets are handwoven from sisal, raffia and sweetgrass and dyed with natural, vegetable dyes. Consisting of literally hundreds of stitches, the patterns of these baskets tell ancient stories and now stand as symbols of peace and reconciliation in a country rebuilding itself after the genocide.
Dimensions: 17" diameter + 6" deep
These baskets are expertly handwoven by women from a fair trade weaving cooperative in a small village near Volcanoes National Park. Ethically-sourced, the sale of these baskets
provide sustainable income for Rwandans while conserving the habitat of
Rwandan mountain gorillas.
