Made only in an ethical, fair trade environment. Handwoven by a cooperative of women located in Rwanda, this one of kind piece takes weeks to complete.
Cleaning the handmade products - Made of natural fibers and grass; do not submerge in water. If necessary, use a damp cloth to wipe or spot clean the basket. After serving bread or other dried foods, turn the product upside down and shake and tap to release crumbs and residue. Avoid using chemicals or detergents.
Sun and fading - Due to being all natural fibers, keep dyed products out of direct sunlight for long periods of time to avoid natural fading. All natural products with little or no coloring do well in direct sunlight.
Avoid moisture or temperate changes when possible - If products are being stored for more than 2 weeks, please keep in a temperature controlled environment, elevated off of a concrete floor to avoid fluctuating cold and warm temperatures that could create mold.
These delicately textured and handcrafted vases were made by groups of women in intimate communities across Rwanda. They use the sisal agave plant and sweet grass to weave them together.
Both committed to social good and with years of nonprofit experiences under their belts— Greg and Alicia still had one big question on their minds:
How can we really empower men and women to overcome poverty in their lifetime?
"We wanted to change people’s live not only through aid, but also through creating
a sustainable enterprise where a family’s income is permanently improved. "
“We believe women and men in rural areas in Africa can be agents of change for themselves, their families, and their community when given the proper training and consistent access to global markets. Their talents and gifts are incredible.”
At KAZI, we’re equipping and empowering women and men to succeed beyond their biggest dreams. Now, these women and men send their kids to school without traditional aid, through their own hard work.
KAZI's mission isn't just to bring handcrafted things to your living room. They are bringing you beautiful pieces that add life to your space and empower artisans to weave a better story for themselves.
