Hope blooms in these handwoven vases that hold special symbolism for their makers. In Rwanda, the lovingly made objects symbolize a wealth of friends, family, and life, so they're often given as gifts to celebrate major milestones such as weddings, births, and graduations.

Rwandan craftswomen use traditional weaving techniques to bind carefully dyed sisal fibers and sweet grass to make one-of-a-kind pieces. The intricate process is passed down from mother to daughter and it takes up to three days to produce each woven work of art. The color palette is Pantone color matched by trained experts and each artisan is an expert in the craft and produces the strongest and tightest weaves found on the continent. Each creation sold empowers the maker and increases her chances for a better life. Prosperity, community status, self-worth, and confidence are just a few of the benefits these beauties bring. Handcrafted in Rwanda.
