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 (small, medium, & large) for a savings of $44!
And please take time to meet the weavers of the tea blossom bowls- the beautiful women of the Zamuka Cooperative (featured below). We wish you could meet these women. They love to laugh and share together as they work, giving one another advice on everything from perfect weaving to child-rearing. Often a mom will pause her work to attend to a rambunctious toddler or to breastfeed her infant. As the women progress to make their livelihood from weaving, they are able to invest money into their own community as they purchase raw materials, buy food and clothes in the local outdoor market, and hire neighbors to work in their fields. These women are making an impact on those around them!
