Medium Black Braided Raffia Basket
The women of the Same Sky Collective in Rwanda hand-wove this basket 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 and designs.
Basket measures 15" x 15"
Handmade in Rwanda
