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!

These small 7 inch bowls make a beautiful and distinctive wall decoration- they are perfect for a small spot that needs a splash of beauty.  The bowls can also be used to hold small but important items like jewelry or keys, or to fill with small treats as a gift basket.  The small Constellation bowls can be purchased individually, or in sets!
