These simple and beautiful coil baskets are handwoven in Rwanda from sisal and fragrant sweetgrass using traditional techniques. The Kigoma basket features a pared back design that allows the natural pale green of the sweetgrass to shine through. The sisal of our current batch has a delicate pink tinge, as shown in the first photo. Perfect as a fruit bowl on the table, and can also be hung on the wall with the attached loop.
