Hand Woven Peace Basket - Black

Coming from skilled Artisans in Rwanda, these beautiful and unique peace baskets are individually hand woven with precision and care. Bold, high contrast design in a versatile size means this lidded basket will make the perfect addition to any room. 

Peace Baskets have a beautiful meaning in Rwanda. After the genocide of 1994, thousands of women were left to pick up the pieces of their broken country, families and lives. Rising from the ashes of tragedy, artist cooperatives emerged as Hutu and Tutsi women united to weave baskets together as a way to rebuild their lives and provide for their families. Peace baskets represent unity and forgiveness, and are the perfect symbolic gift of peace.
