These handwoven baskets are true works of art! They are handmade by artisans in Gitirama, Rwanda. The women hand-dye and weave the fibers into these beautiful works of art. The sisal is woven around sweetgrass, a fragrant grass with a subtle sweetness. Use these African baskets as a storage basket, a plant holder, or to brighten up a space!
Amsha Studios combines modern design with traditional techniques to create mindful home and lifestyle products. With the purchase of their goods, they create opportunities for six women’s co-ops and several independent artisans across Africa. Their makers are provided with skills training, market access, fair pay, a collaborative work environment, and a path for economic independence.
Why we love these baskets: Not only are they absolutely stunning but they are so functional! They are large enough to fit blankets, toys, plants or more.
