Title:Traditional Grass Peace Basket - Natural White & Black

The traditional Rwandan gift is this lovely and delicate basket.

To make each Traditional Peace Basket, the artist weaves valley grasses and banana leaves over a papyrus frame for about a week. Yes, it's a lot of work.

Description

Traditional Peace Baskets are frequently used in Rwanda to store various gifts, such as the one that every bride gives to her new husband's mother. These baskets can then be proudly displayed in the home or used to store dry products like beans or rice.

The Handcrafted Details

  • Crafted from valley grasses and banana leaves, woven over a papyrus frame.
