This sisal, woven bowl is handmade by our artisans in Gitarama, Rwanda in East Africa. The women grow their own sisal plants, extract the fibers, then hand-dye and weave them into these beautiful works of art. This sisal basket comes with a string attached to the back so that you can hang it on the wall. In addition to making a beautiful table display, these baskets can also be hung as wall art. You can also combine them with other baskets or works of art to make a collage display.

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