Virunga Footprints - Rwanda Basket

Virunga National Park in Rwanda is home to one of the largest and most famous gorilla populations on earth. Social animals by nature, these magnificent creatures live in tight-knit troops that roam the volcanic mountains freely, protected by Rwanda's strict conservation laws. Those lucky enough to see them never forget the experience. The woven "footprints" of this Rwandan fair trade basket celebrates the collaborative way the gorillas live and honor the awe they inspire in all of us.

Origin: Rwanda
Size: 12"D
*Because each basket is a unique work of art, variations in size and color will occur.

About the Project: These fair trade baskets are woven by the women of the Kinigi Weavers Association, in a small village near Volcanoes National Park. Each fair trade basket is hand-crafted from sisal and consists of literally hundreds of stitches. The patterns of these baskets tell ancient stories and now stand as symbols of peace and reconciliation in a country rebuilding itself after the genocide.
