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!
The large bowl is flat on the bottom and makes a beautiful tray for serving or display. Imagine the medium bowl on your dining room table filled with warm bread or fruit, and 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- the trio looks gorgeous on a blank wall. Our woven bowls can be purchased individually, or as a ‘family” set (large, medium, & small) for a savings of $44!
And we invite you to get to know the weavers of the Eggplant Star and Constellation bowls- the women of Abarikumwe People Who Are Together Association. The association president, named Illuminee, is the best dye-er of sisal we know. The process of achieving a bold and consistent color can be challenging, and Illuminee has the magic touch. The group as a whole are among the best weavers we work with, and they are determined to use their art to lift their families from poverty. We hope you enjoy meeting this group through their featured profile (below)!
