Product Meaning & Purpose
Baskets carry their own symbolism in Rwanda. Because friends give them to celebrate major life events such as weddings, births and graduations, baskets are proudly displayed as symbols of wealth of friends, family and life. Often referred to as “the land of a thousand hills,” Rwanda is composed of countless mountain ranges whose steep slopes are dotted with thousands of terraced farms that seemingly defy gravity as sure-footed farmers harvest crops from these precipitous plots. The beautiful design illustrates the mountain ranges that cover the nation and surround the countryside with amazing views.
