Agaseke Peace Basket
Approximately 6.5″ Across x 12.5″ Tall
Rural weavers in Rwanda of all tribes, including Hutus and Tutsis, work side by side to produce these uniquely woven baskets. The baskets are a message of reconciliation, peace, and hope for the future. These traditional Rwandan baskets are woven using native grasses, reeds, and sisal fibers. In Rwanda, basket weaving is passed down from generation to generation, from grandmother to mother to daughter.
Baskets are such a powerful symbol of Rwanda’s fresh start that an Agaseke Peace Basket is included at the center of the country’s coat of arms, and is also featured on Rwanda’s 5,000 Franc banknote.
Basket colors may vary slightly, as this is a one of a kind handmade item.
