Care Instructions:

Cleaning the handmade products - Made of natural fibers and grass; do not submerge in water. If necessary, use a damp cloth to wipe or spot clean the basket. After serving bread or other dried foods, turn the product upside down and shake and tap to release crumbs and residue. Avoid using chemicals or detergents.

Sun and fading - Due to being all natural fibers, keep dyed products out of direct sunlight for long periods of time to avoid natural fading. All natural products with little or no coloring do well in direct sunlight.

Avoid moisture or temperate changes when possible - If products are being stored for more than 2 weeks, please keep in a temperature controlled environment, elevated off of a concrete floor to avoid fluctuating cold and warm temperatures that could create mold.

Meaning & Purpose:

Baskets carry their own symbolism in Rwanda. Because friends give them to celebrate major life events such as weddings, births and graduations, baskets are proudly displayed as symbols of wealth of friends, family and life

Very well done baskets

I love artesanal things and when I found Kazi I was fascinated with all the products and for what I was looking for. I ordered 4 different baskets to hang in the wall, all of them are very well crafted and really good quality materials. I wish I can post a picture of how it look my little corner with the decoration items.

Classic

The blues in this basket are a classic decorating piece in my home. I use it on the wall or table if I have guests and it hasn't gone out of style yet (1.5 years+). Love the quality and craftsmanship.
