HANDWOVEN IN RWANDA
This just may be the cutest, tiniest basket you've ever seen. And the amazing part is it's super functional and useful!
Style it on a shelf for additional storage or add it to your desk organization or even in your bathroom storing cotton balls, makeup or jewelry.
This tiny basket can also serve as a small catch all and is just the right size for keys, jewelry or paper clips.

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.
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.
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.
I have purchased at least 8 pieces from Kazi at this point for myself and for gifts. Each piece has been made so beautifully and with great skill. The colors design and color combinations are the best I've seen in woven basketry. I am a huge fan of this line.
