There is a hand-stitched loop on the back of each basket for ready to hang wall art.

They use the raffia plant and banana fibers to weave them together.

We are good at communicating and quick to understand every situation. This is why I am so grateful for KAZI, because I see them giving women a chance to succeed.”

Meet the Maker

Kazi

Kazi believes that everyone deserves to make a fair wage to support themselves and those around them, no matter where they are in the world. They work to alleviate poverty across rural Africa through sustainable and scalable job creation.

The Inspiration

Meaning & Purpose: Rwandan women owe their skills to the women before them who passed on the knowledge from generation to generation—mother to daughter, grandmother to child. As young weavers learn from their elders, they quickly realize the weaving process is a painstaking one. Passing on basket weaving to young women carries the weight of upholding a time-honored practice and an age-old rite of passage. Baskets decorate nearly every Rwandan home, for they are one of the most important symbols of family, friendship, good fortune, and proud cultural heritage.

The Impact

By employing expert weavers in Rwanda, Uganda and Ghana, each artisan income brings economic opportunity to their family and community. When you purchase artisan-made goods, you aren't simply purchasing a woven product - you're investing in a high-quality, handcrafted, naturally sourced work of art created by an experienced weaver.
