Extra Large Sisal Basket

$ 98.00

This sisal, woven basket is 100% handmade by artisans in Gitarama, Rwanda. The women grow their own sisal plants, extract the fibers, then hand-dye and weave them into these beautiful works of art. The sisal is woven around sweetgrass, a fragrant grass with a subtle sweetness. In addition to making a beautiful table display each sisal basket comes with a string attached to the back so it can be hung on a wall. Combining several baskets with other works of art you can create a truly special wall collage.  
  • Approximately 17 inches in diameter
