HANDWOVEN IN RWANDA
The sunburst pattern on these baskets is known as the “hope” design. Reflected on the Rwandan flag, this sunburst images stands for the county’s collective hope for a new dawn and brighter future. This design means a lot to the weavers we partner with, as each basket they sell increases their chances for a better life.
This heat resistant trivet is perfect to set a tea kettle on or hot dish from the oven. With a woven loop attached on the back, they can be hung up as wall decor for a globally inspired feel.

These delicately textured and handcrafted trivets were made by groups of women in intimate communities across Rwanda. They use the sisal agave plant and sweet grass to weave them together.
An elegant trivet
I am very pleased with the 10” silver and black unity hot pad - it’s beautiful in and of itself and works perfectly in a formal table setting with crystal, fine China and silver cutlery. The design is timeless and the color way subtle — the combination of silver, black and white — the white is essential and adds balance and elegance to what might otherwise be somewhat tacky.
love love love
We sell out of these trivets very fast. They are the perfect size for any sized pot or bowl, keeping tables safe from heat. The colors are spectacular and the designs magical.
I purchased this to add to my book shelves. It is a colorful pop and I love the asymmetry of the design. Beautifully made!
Looks as pictured
I haven't used the hot pad yet, but it looks exactly like it does in the picture. It's clearly hand-woven with unique materials. Beautiful product- would recommend.
