Sisal Peace Basket: Large Chevron Tea
These sisal baskets, a Malena exclusive design, are a beautiful way to bring a piece of Rwandan tradition to any day or celebration. Woven from natural sisal fibers, one 18 inch basket takes days to weave. Though securely attached, the lids of these miniature baskets can be removed- it’s the perfect hiding place for a gift! These baskets are exclusive to the Malena Collection.
The sisal peace basket has also become a Rwandan cultural symbol of peace and reconciliation.
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!
