Large Sisal Basket

$ 55.00

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 12 inches in diameter 

By purchasing this basket, you are providing a source of income for women weavers in Rwanda, which in turn helps them to raise healthy families, improve their living conditions, and better their community.
