---------------------------------

Hand-crafted goods like woven baskets play a key role in helping women provide food and education for their families post the civil war in Rwanda. Baskets made from sisal fibers, banana leaves, banana stalks, and local forest grasses are popular in Rwanda. Sisal fibers are extracted from the long leaves of an agave plant. The fibers are cleaned, dried, colored, and then woven into beautiful basket bowls, trivets, coasters, and more. Only natural dyes are used to color sisal fibers. The materials used for weaving sisal baskets are all gathered and produced locally.
