Banana Leaf Stacking Trays: Natural Interior
Our banana leaf stacking trays are crafted from the locally-gathered leaves and stalks of banana trees. Artisans use a specially designed, handmade needle to thread dried banana leaves around the banana stalks. Banana leaves are twisted into twine or braided to create handles on either side of the rectangular trays.
We envision these trays as a beautiful and interesting way to serve your guests, be it bringing snacks and drinks to the family room, or laying out towels in the guest room. The three trays of the set nest inside one another for easy storage.
The Rwandan social enterprise who made these is focused on maximizing economic opportunity for rural artisans through the development and promotion of their craft. They offer fair prices, and as well as design coaching. Rising from the horrors of genocide, artisans from all backgrounds have joined together through their art to create a better future. With their sustainable and fair income, parents are caring for the health, nutrition, and education of their children, families are building better homes, and women are raising their voices in their communities.
These treasures are hand created by our artisan partners in Rwanda, so slight variations in materials and colors will occur, which means you will get a one-of-a-kind item!
