HANDMADE AFRICAN BASKET from RWANDA

The "OG" basket that started it all.

Classic and timeless - the large sisal bowl was the first basket KAZI started carrying. These versatile woven baskets are the perfect size. Style the statement basket on a shelf for additional organization in your living room, add it to your coffee table for a globally inspired feel, or use it as a serving bowl for your favorite fruit. Or, use the basket as storage for keys and mail on your entryway furniture. Most commonly, we find the loop on the back makes this gorgeous piece of wall art ready to hang.

This will soon become your favorite decorative piece in your home.



Specifications:
  • Approximately 12” D x 4” H
  • Fair Trade
  • Made in Rwanda
  • Products are made from all natural fibers of sisal and sweetgrass
  • Organic dyes are used to dye the sisal
  • Profiled weaver tag is attached to each product
  • Baskets have a hang loop on the back for wall décor - ready to hang

Care Instructions:
Cleaning
  • Made of natural fibers and grass; do not submerge in water.
  • If necessary, use a damp cloth to wipe or spot clean the basket.
  • After serving bread or other dried foods, turn the product upside down: shake and tap to release crumbs and residue.
  • Avoid using chemicals or detergents.
Sun and fading
  • Due to being all natural fibers, keep dyed products out of direct sunlight for long periods of time to avoid natural fading.
  • All natural products with little or no coloring do well in direct sunlight.
Moisture
  • Avoid temperature changes when possible.
  • If products are being stored for more than 2 weeks, please keep in a temperature controlled environment, elevated off of a concrete floor to avoid fluctuating cold and warm temperatures that could create mold.

Meaning & Purpose

The intricate designs and flawless work of an experienced weaver is never the result of luck. Rather, Rwandan women owe their skills to the women before them who passed on the knowledge from generation to generation—mother to daughter, grandmother to child. As young weavers learn from their elders, they quickly realize the weaving process is a painstaking one. Passing on basket weaving to young women carries the weight of upholding a time-honored practice and an age-old rite of passage. Baskets decorate nearly every Rwandan home, for they are one of the most important symbols of family, friendship, good fortune, and proud cultural heritage.

How Do You Offset Carbon?

We plant a tree with every item purchased on our store. Purchase 3 KAZI Goods & we'll plant 3 trees — offsetting carbon from shipping by reforesting lands with native flora, not quick grow tree farms.


We do this with the help of Ecologi & The Eden Reforestation Project. They partner with villages committed to restoring their forests. Hiring and training local villagers to plant new trees.


They only plant native tree species. And the villages protect their new forests because they have a vested interest in them. See more here.
