Joy Baskets - set of 3, Rwanda

These cheerful little Joy Baskets are wonderful gifts for children, who can store a few small treasures in them. You can even hang them as an ornament in your home.

The baskets are crafted by weavers at a cooperative in Rwanda renowned for their skills in basket weaving.  Basket weaving has become a symbol for healing in Rwanda- often with circles of both Hutu and Tutsi women coming together to weave these traditional baskets in the spirit of reconciliation.  No longer a simple craft, basket weaving is transformed into something much larger and meaningful in the women's lives. Today, the women are celebrating their new world by creating basket weaving enterprises that support them and their families.

We hope these cheerful Joy Baskets bring a smile to your face!

Includes a set of 3 baskets (colors will vary).
