When I opened the box and saw the woven bowl inside, I knew I was instantly in love! This bowl is beautifully made, sturdy and perfect colors to compliment my house. I am so in love with this bowl and keep moving it around the house to show it off! We've used it as a decorative bowl and also an easy drop place for keys at our entry table. I am also in love with the fact that by purchasing these bowls, you are supporting a wonderful organization and benefitting people across the globe. I am so thankful to have been a part of the Stellar Product Testing Panel and to have received this bowl as part of a panel. I will definitely be looking to purchase more bowl and also find a place in my home to display their beautiful craftsmanship on a wall. Grouping them together will make a great statement piece!
Artisanal and Multidimensional
This woven bowl is such a creative and beautiful addition to my gallery wall. The color scheme is so fresh and of the moment. I love the dimension this piece lends. I received it as part of the Stellar Product Testing Panel, and look forward to purchasing other sizes to add to my collection. This bowl is small enough to be used as a desktop catch-all, but I feel like the workmanship is best appreciated when it’s on display on a wall. I also love supporting Kazi’s mission to provide job opportunities for Rwandan artisans.
I love the bowl! I did not get to pick colors because I was trying the product, but what was shipped matches my decor perfectly. The bowl can be hung on the wall or placed on a table. I chose to place it on my dining room table. I am moving furniture around, so I’m not sure it is in a final place yet. It is very sturdy and can hold small trinkets. I think it could be placed in many locations around the house. I did not choose that hang it on my wall because I only had one smaller bowl and felt it would need to go with a collection of items. I don’t have anything up currently that would lend to adding a woven bowl. The product comes with a tag showing who made your bowl and a little info about the person, this is a nice touch. They also ship a booklet showing how to hang the bowls, giving ideas for arranging them. The booklet also shows other colors or designs they have. I think this would be a great gift for a variety of ages. My mother liked the basket and my 11 year old daughter tried to take it for use in her room. I like the fact that it is a sustainable product and supports artisans by paying a fair wage. I think it is very well made and will last for many years to come. I received the product through the Stellar Product Testing Panel!
Beautifully Handmade with a Purpose
I was so excited to receive this product from Stellar Parent Panel. It is even more beautiful in person. This bowl is a wonderful addition to my bookcase and has gotten several compliments from visitors that comment on this unique piece. I love the opportunity to share Kazi’s mission which adds so much value of this colorful decoration. I could also see using this as a jewelry bowl on a dresser!
Love it Cute and great neutral colors
I received this 6" woven bowl to try as part of the Stellar Product Testing Panel. The bowl is super cute and I am currently using it as a catch-all by the door. I love the look, design, and style. I did only receive one and would like to get more to use as wall decor but at the moment just the one which works well as a catch-all. It is very well made and sturdy and also comes with a loop on the back for hanging if you wanted to display it on your wall. The colors are very neutral and they really compliment each other. Would be easy to pair with decor. The material reminds me ( the smell ) of when we had rabbits, but that is not bothersome to me and I only smell it if I actually pick it up and put it to my nose. However, just want to put that out there in case it would be a problem for someone. The quality is excellent and I love everything about the company. What a great way to conduct business through sustainability - eco-positive, support, and fair wages for people. Again, I want to thank the Stellar Product Testing Panel for providing me with this 6" woven bowl.
