Rwanda

After the Rwandan genocide in 1994, women came together in weaving cooperatives to provide for their families. Their exquisite woven bowls and baskets come in all shapes, sizes, colors, and designs, and share a beautiful story of healing. Today, the traditional baskets have taken on the name, “peace baskets,” as a symbol of hope for the future. Products are made with fibers from agave leaves and can be completely customized based on size, shape and color.

Our artisans are provided work and paid a fair wage for each handmade basket. Through the additional income gained, they are able to invest in their businesses, pay for their children’s school fees, and set aside money to plan for the future.
