We absolutely love the colours and patterns of these handmade African woven bowls. They look just beautiful hung on the wall (and come with a hanging loop just for this purpose), or display on a shelf, coffee table or sideboard. They are deep enough to be used as a storage basket for fruit, remotes or keys and wallets, and so on.

These intricately woven bowls are created by craftswomen in Rwanda using traditional techniques. They are each stunning, one-of-a-kind pieces, rich in cultural meaning and purpose. Friends give them as gifts to celebrate major life events such as weddings, births and graduations, and the bowls are proudly displayed as symbols of friends, family and life.

The sunburst pattern on this bowl is known as the “Hope” design. It is reflective of the design on the Rwandan flag, and represents both the country’s collective hope for a brighter future as well as each of the weaver's individual hopes and chances for a better life with each bowl and basket sold.
