10" Medium Apricot & Olive Striped Round Basket
Made of the highest quality natural fibers in an ethical, fair trade environment. These delicately textured and woven baskets were made by groups of women in intimate communities across rural Rwanda where sisal fibers are wound stitch by stitch around a small sweetgrass bundle. Handwoven by a woman over the course of several days in her home in remote regions of Rwanda.
This incredibly versatile and vibrant fair trade bowl can transform any wall when paired with other bowls, plates, or discs for an eye-catching and composed feel. It is also a perfect accent for organization on a bookshelf, serves as a colorful fruit bowl, or it can be a catch-all to organize keys and clutter on your entryway furniture. The silky fibers, vibrant color, and cheerful pattern will catch your eye wherever you use it! Most commonly hung for decor, each basket comes with a hand-stitched loop on the back so you can instantly enjoy this piece of ready-to-hang wall art.
*All products are made by hand with love and vary slightly in color and size.
