Rwandan Zigzag Basket
A classic Rwandan art form, this fair trade, firmly coiled basket is made from sisal and wrapped with black thread, crafted in dynamic, traditional patterns. An artful addition to any shelf.
Made by a group of women basket weavers in the western Rwandan village of Muramba, an area gravely affected by the genocide of 1994. Your purchase provides financial support to these women, many of whom are widows and the sole income earners for their families.
Sold individually. 5 3/4"h x 7"diameter.
