a closer look
All of our woven bowls are created from dyed natural sisal fibers woven over a core of forest grasses. The weavers begin in the middle of the bowl, carefully threading the sisal around and around to create this beautiful design. The tea color is created when the naturally-white sisal fibers are steeped in Rwandan-grown tea leaves!
Imagine the medium bowl on your dining room table filled with warm bread or fruit for guests. The small bowl is a beautiful way to hold jewelry or keys, or to fill with small treats as a gift basket. Each bowl has a loop on the back for hanging. These woven bowls can be purchased individually, or as a pair (small & medium) for a savings of $10!
