These miniature baskets could be the perfect favors for your wedding or shower. We think your friends would love taking home their own basket as a reminder of your celebration, knowing also that the work of Rwandan artisans has been supported with their gift.  Inside each 4 inch basket is a small tag which tells the name of the artisan group who wove the basket, and the community where it was crafted.  There is also just enough room to hide a small gift or treat!

Miniature baskets are woven from natural sisal fibers, and come in four color combinations: green & white, red & white, blue & white, and black & white.  Or contact us early to find out about having baskets custom-made in your colors at no extra charge!  Just email Tom MacGregor at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).
