Bring more fair trade beauty to your home with hand woven coasters. These newly redesigned coasters are 100% natural, made with forest grasses and local sisal fibers in a natural white and tea-dyed colorway.

Designed with a different two-sided weave style in some of our best-loved patterns. Woven with a thin trivet-style weave, these sets of coasters are more versatile than ever. They also make a wonderful gift!

Responsibly sourced and thoughtfully crafted with natural sisal fibers threaded over a core of locally-gathered forest grasses by Fair Trade artisans in Rwanda.

The weavers begin in the middle of the basket, carefully threading the sisal around and around to create this beautiful design. The tea color is created when the naturally-white sisal fibers are steeped in Rwandan-grown tea leaves.

Artisan Story

HANDWOVEN IN RWANDA

"Our purpose is to fight against poverty and to develop ourselves."

The 17 women of Kundagaseke “Basket Lovers” Association have dedicated themselves to getting out of poverty: rising above the conditions they used to live in. In addition to farming, the artisans spend their days weaving baskets, coasters, earrings, and bracelets to make enough money to support themselves and their families. They work patiently and diligently, a single bracelet taking a full day to create. The members of Kundagaseke use their weaving time to discuss unity, culture, and reconciliation.

The women of Kundagaseke are seeing their hard work pay off. They have been able to cover their basic necessities, like clothing, shoes, soap, and health insurance, and several have been able to purchase cell phones and invest in land and domestic animals as well.
