HANDWOVEN IN RWANDA
The three-line pattern on this basket is known as the “unity” design and symbolizes the three ethnic groups that divided Rwanda in 1994, but who now work together to heal wounds from the past. Weavers heal through the collective effort of working toward the same purpose and goal: to create beauty with their own hands.
Our coasters have a multicolored and organic look to them, making them perfect for any style decor. They can be used for your glass of wine in the evening, or on the living table when you are enjoying your early morning cup of coffee.
