Intricately woven. Craftswomen in Rwanda use timeless tradition to weave carefully dyed sisal fibers and sweet grass to make stunning one of a kind pieces rich in cultural meaning and purpose. They are just the right size for a center piece, fruit bowl, or wall hanging.
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.
The linear rays emanating from the sunrise pattern of this basket paints a picture of dawn's first light peeking through the morning mist over the beautiful hills in Rwanda and Uganda.
The radiating light reveals stillness and peace, uniting the people of each region with a warm glow as they emerge from the dark of night.
Because these nations sit on the equator, the sun consistently rises at 6 a.m. all year long. East Africans are greeted with a dependably punctual sun that brightens each new beginning that comes with each new day.
