This Hela Sisal Fiber woven basket is approximately 12" in diameter and handmade by our artisans in Gitarama, Rwanda. The women grow their own sisal plants, extract the fibers, then hand-dye and weave them into these beautiful works of art. The sisal is woven around sweetgrass, a fragrant grass with a subtle sweetness. This size basket takes three days to weave and comes with a string attached to the back so that you can hang it on the wall. In addition to making a beautiful table display, these baskets can also be hung as art. You can combine them with other baskets or works of art to make a feature wall collage.By purchasing this basket, you are providing a source of income for women weavers in Rwanda, which in turn helps them to raise healthy families, improve their living conditions, and better their community.
