Sisal Bowl Basket - Kigembe, Rwanda

This stunning basket is created by weaving sisal around sweetgrass, a fragrant, slightly sweet grass local to Rwanda.  Large enough for storage, yet beautiful as a  table display or wall hanging, this versatile basket makes the perfect gift - or treat yourself to one.

Small basket measures approximately 8" in diameter, large basket measures 12." There is a loop on the back for hanging.

All of our products are shipped with cards containing information about fair trade and the corresponding artisan group.


This basket is handwoven in a fair trade women's cooperative in Rwanda.  In addition to receiving fair wages, the artisans are provided with skills training, market access, a collaborative work environment, and a path for economic independence.  Modern designs pair with traditional techniques to create baskets that appeal to Western markets.  The women have seen their lives greatly improve through steady, well-paid jobs and access to further education.
