MEANING AND PURPOSE

Each basket tells a story. The stories of the Rwandan women who have intricately handcrafted these baskets from sweet grass and the leaves of the agave sisal plant. The intricate designs and flawless work of an experienced weaver is never the result of luck. Rather, Rwandan women owe their skills to the women before them who passed on the knowledge from generation to generation—mother to daughter, grandmother to child. Each piece is unique, culturally and traditionally inspired, and handwoven in intimate Rwandan communities.

This basket, left unfinished, will add a pop of color to any room while also giving your home a rustic touch with the exposed sweet grass.

Design
Land of a Thousand Hills Design

This basket recalls Rwanda’s mountainous terrain. The beautiful design illustrates the mountain ranges that cover the nation and surround the countryside with amazing views.

Often referred to as “the land of a thousand hills” Rwanda is composed of countless mountain ranges whose steep slopes are dotted with thousands of terraced farms that seemingly defy gravity as sure-footed farmers harvest crops from these precipitous plots.

Hidden among the hills are thriving vegetation and vibrant wildlife, most famously the rare mountain gorillas. It’s been said that Rwanda’s terrain offers a democratic beauty, as rich and poor alike are blessed with incredible views of the land and cities.

Kazi exists to create fair living wages, good working conditions and market access for artisans.  Some might call this “fair trade”, we call it good business. 

We are the first of 5 companies to receive the highly regarded Nest Seal. Every year we undergo an onsite audit in each country and with each cooperative to earn the right to mark our products with this important seal. 

When you see the Nest Seal you have the confidence to know products have been ethically handcrafted in a home or small workshop. This means fair wages are paid, good working conditions are provided, there are no children or forced labor in the workforce, materials are traced and fairly sourced and all aspects of the production and material processes (like dyeing) are in consideration of the environment and safe working environments.
