The story of the Rwanda Peace Basket
For centuries, the Rwandan culture has woven baskets by hand that require precision and patience. Traditionally exchanged among families during wedding ceremonies and used to stock food in the household, the pattern of these baskets has a very special meaning: It tells the story of two friends walking each other along a path, stopping to chat with others, and then continuing on their way. By giving these personalized ornaments to your friends and family, you’re giving them a symbol of your friendship and support—no matter where their path leads them.
Handcrafted with the highest quality and ethical standards, our ornaments add beauty to your holiday tree and your friends’ trees, too. They also make great office or mantle decorations and can hold your precious items year-round. The cover is removable yet stays on when hung.
