This sisal, woven basket made by our artisans in Gitarama, Rwanda. The women extract the sisal fibers from agave plants, 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. Each sisal Rwandan basket 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. This collective is made up of 30 weaving groups, with more than 500 active weavers. Due to droughts in recent years, the women heavily rely on weaving as their main source of income.
