TheåÊ12" basket can be used as a fruit bowl, center piece or even a place to display books on your coffee table. Meaningfully and purposefully designed, each basket has a woven loop that allow you to hang it up on the wall as a decorative piece.
The sunburst pattern on these baskets is known as the ‰ÛÏHOPE‰ design. Reflected on the Rwandan flag, this sunburst image stands for the country‰۪s collective hope for a new dawn and brighter future.
This design means a lot to the weavers we partner with, as each basket they sell increases their chances for a better life. Quality of life, community status, self-worth and confidence are just a few of the hopeful effects these baskets bring. With the income the weavers receive, they are able to open bank accounts, start businesses and even hire other workers.
The effect from the production and income of basket weaving ripples through the country bringing hope for a better future far and wide.
