This beautiful black & White patterns is handcrafted by creative Rwandan grass weavers, using age-old techniques documented in Rwanda’s national museum. Lightweight and delicately woven, the artisans partner withan expert bamboo weaver who creates the inner frame for the basket, and then the grass weaver creates the beautiful exterior. So this is a two-stage, two-artisan basket. And the coloring process is amazing! Takes about 4-5 days to complete one basket.
