Banana Leaf Deep Tray
These gorgeous deep trays are made from hand-gathered local banana leaves and stalks.This multi-purpose tray is beautiful and versatile! The diagonal sides and woven-in handles make the deep tray an interesting way to serve, store, and organize.
Artisans use a specially designed, handmade needle to thread dried banana leaves around the banana stalks. We like to use the deep tray for serving (it has handles on either side), for storage, and for organizing anything at all. The diagonal side walls of the tray make them not only stylish, but easy to stack as well.
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!
