    We partner with artisans in Rwanda who make handwoven baskets and bags using raffia: a straw-like fiber that can be stripped from the inside of palm tree leaves. The fibers are found only in a special species of palm tree that grows abundantly across sub-Saharan Africa. The artisans weave the raffia fibers using a needle and thread, creating a range of shapes, designs, and products that look beautiful in natural or hand-dyed raffia tones.

    Dimensions: 14" x 20" 

    Material: Braided Raffia
