The traditional Rwandan peace baskets is a unique and beautiful item for the home but these baskets also have a poignant history.
Following the genocide in Rwanda, women were left to pick up the pieces of their shattered country. In order to provide for their communities left in the destruction's wake, many banded together to form artisan cooperatives.
Women came together to make traditional Rwandan baskets, which have since earned the title of “peace baskets.” To this day, peace baskets are a powerful symbol in Rwanda. They represent the generosity, compassion, and forgiveness that have helped this country rise above for a brighter future.
