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!
