  • All natural products with little or no coloring do well in direct sunlight.

Meaning & Purpose

Baskets have widespread uses and styles for almost any area of domestic life: simple woven goods are often used to create kitchen and farm storage for sorting beans or separating seeds, plates for local foods like posho (cornmeal porridge), bedding or floor mats, and wall coverings. More refined forms of basketry are often used to store jewelry, coins and other smaller items. The finest baskets are considered works of art, sometimes used as props in Rwandan dances or as personal ornaments.

Beautiful design, sturdy basket!

I love these neutral colors. I’m using the basket to hold my dog’s leash and harness near the door. The equipment is too unwieldy to put on a table, so I had been tossing it on the floor. This is much nicer! It’s a bonus that the basket smells pretty too!
