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.
Towering thousands of feet above sea level, the Virunga and Karisimbi mountain ranges form a scenic backdrop for the country and provide habitat for a population of rare mountain gorillas.
This basket is dedicated to Rwanda's bold and beautiful mountain gorillas who can be found roaming in the rich vegetative forests nestled among Rwanda's volcanic mountains. Tourists come from all over the world for a chance to make the trek to Rwanda to see these incredible mammals; the region boasts the last place on earth to see the animals in their natural habitat.
