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.
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.
Care: Dust with a smooth, dry cloth. Or feather duster. Everyone loves a good feather duster!
