Place the Boutique Shimmy Sisal Peace Basket on your bookshelf for a contemporary accent or give her to a friend…either way, you can’t go wrong with this modern twist on a traditional Rwandan custom.
In Rwanda, Sisal Peace Baskets are given at weddings or on other special occasions, containing gifts of friendship and thanks. Simple yet thoughtful, the traditional pattern symbolizes the mountain path of friends bearing such gifts, hidden in baskets.
Weavers work for 4-5 days to weave one of these traditional baskets.
Woven from hand-extracted sisal fibers, a renewable resource.
