The woven basket with a pointed lid is a Rwandan cultural symbol. The traditional stripe pattern represents a path taken by friends, carrying gifts to another dear friend. These miniature baskets are a beautiful way to bring a piece of Rwandan tradition to your Christmas celebration.
Woven from natural sisal fibers, these baskets are lightweight. An artisan weaves for at least one full day to create one 4 inch basket.
Though securely attached, the lids of these miniature baskets can be removed- it’s the perfect hiding place for a small gift!
Buy one, or create your own set. Or adorn your whole tree in baskets!
