HANDWOVEN IN RWANDA. The three-line pattern on this basket is known as the “unity” design and symbolizes the three ethnic groups that divided Rwanda in 1994, but who now work together to heal wounds from the past. Weavers heal through the collective effort of working toward the same purpose and goal: to create beauty with their own hands. This heat resistant trivet is perfect to set a tea kettle on or hot dish from the oven. With a woven loop attached on the back, they can be hung up as wall decor for a globally inspired feel.: Meaning & Purpose:These delicately textured and handcrafted trivets were made by groups of women in intimate communities across Rwanda. They use the sisal agave plant and sweet grass to weave them together.
Approximately 10” D x 0.5” H. Organic dyes are used to dye the sisal. Profiled weaver tag is attached to each product. Trivet has a hang loop on the back for wall décor. Safe to use with food.
