These finely crafted, delicate basket ornaments are modeled after the traditional form of baskets from Rwanda. Baskets have served many functions in Rwandan history including holding food, celebrating weddings, and carrying secrets from one woman to another. Our miniature baskets are made from natural fibers, utilizing a technique that has been practiced for almost a thousand years.

Rwanda, a tiny and extremely poor country in the lakes region of East Africa, is sadly best known for a devastating civil war in 1994. Handicrafts such as these baskets form a major source of income for Rwandan women. The baskets are a testament to the strength of the proud Rwandan people and their commitment to weaving a lasting peace.

Since peace is something we hope for year-round, we offer these compact, handwoven baskets not only as a Christmas ornament, but also a daily reminder of the quest for peace.

Your ornament includes a quotation from someone who has dedicated his or her life to peace, such as "We belong to each other" (Mother Teresa), or a Rwandan proverb, such as "The stick that has whipped your rival should be thrown away."
