The Sisal Peace Basket in Chevron is a beautiful and practical way to bring a distinctively Rwandan touch to your decorating, storing, or gift-giving!

Across the thousand hills of Rwanda, groups of women are sitting together, weaving sisal baskets in the traditional way. The sisal fiber is extracted from the long leaf of a plant that resembles aloe. When the green fleshy part of the leaf is stripped away, white string-like fibers remain. These fibers are cleaned and dried, cooked in dye, and then woven into traditional forms such as the peaked peace basket.

The peace basket is still used in Rwanda for special gift giving. Many local homes have these baskets proudly displayed, or put to practical use holding dry goods like beans or rice. The naturally white fibers are dyed with Rwandan tea leaves, creating a 100% natural product.

*Also available in Chevron Diamond

  • An artisan weaves for 4-5 days to complete one basket
