Set of Two Mini Sisal Baskets with Lid from Rwanda


Set of Two Mini Sisal Baskets with Lid from Rwanda.

Sisal is a member of the agave plant family. Sisal fibers are extracted from the leaf, cleaned, and dried before they begin hand weaving. These baskets are made by wrapping sisal fibers around locally harvested grasses.

This is a set of two mini baskets in sand color with ivory and black pattern details.  The basket with ivory detail has a diamond pattern and the basket with black detail has a steps pattern. Both baskets measure 6" in height, 9" in height with lid and 5" in diameter. Use these baskets to store trinkets on your bookshelf or for makeup brushes on your vanity. These baskets are traditionally used for gift giving and are proudly displayed in Rwandan homes. This is a handcrafted item, so the product may vary slightly in color and craft from images.

This product is made by artisans in rural Rwanda.
