Peace Basket- Traditional Grass
This beautiful and delicate basket is the quintessential Rwandan gift. The artisan weaves for about a week, using valley grasses and banana leaves over a papyrus frame, to create each Traditional Peace Basket.
Each trivet begins with the gathering of forest grasses and large sisal leaves. Once the sisal fibers have been extracted from the leaf, cleaned, dyed, and dried, the artisans are ready to begin. The sisal fibers are threaded around and around a core of forest grasses, the design taking shape bit by bit. In the end, you have a beautiful and useful addition to your dinner table. Hand woven trivets also make a lovely housewarming gift.
