Serve your guests dinner in style with this hand-woven placemat. The texture evokes the traditional patterns found in Rwandan baskets, giving your table a global and traveled look. This piece will make for an eye-catching conversation starter at your next dinner gathering.
The sunburst pattern on these baskets is known as the “hope” design. Reflected on the Rwandan flag, this sunburst image stands for the country’s collective hope for a new dawn and brighter future.
This design means a lot to the weavers we partner with, as each basket they sell increases their chances for a better life. Quality of life, community status, self-worth and confidence are just a few of the hopeful effects these baskets bring. With the income the weavers receive, they are able to open bank accounts, start businesses and even hire other workers. This is a fair trade product.
