Meaning & Purpose

The intricate designs and flawless work of an experienced weaver is never the result of luck. Rather, Rwandan women owe their skills to the women before them who passed on the knowledge from generation to generation—mother to daughter, grandmother to child. As young weavers learn from their elders, they quickly realize the weaving process is a painstaking one. Passing on basket weaving to young women carries the weight of upholding a time-honored practice and an age-old rite of passage. Baskets decorate nearly every Rwandan home, for they are one of the most important symbols of family, friendship, good fortune, and proud cultural heritage.

    Great material and style

    I received the product through the Stellar Product Testing Panel and it is so beautiful! It’s very thick and you can tell it’s really well made. The design, the style and material went beautifully with what I already had in my house and the material was really nice. Kazi's commitment to sustainability, supporting artisans, and fair wages is a really big deal to me too because I know it’s supports the same values I have. Overall, I loved it and enjoy having it on display.

    A beautiful piece of table art!

    I received this Kazi 10” table plate from the Stellar Product Testing Panel. The first thing I noticed is how incredibly well-made and beautiful it is! The craftsmanship is amazing, and it looks lovely against my wooden table. The attached card says that the trivet was made by Christine from Rwanda, whose wages are helping her make improvements to her home and save money to send her kids to school. I was touched by Christine’s story, and struck by how it closely resembles my own. Meeting the needs of our families, safe and comfortable housing, and education are common goals no matter the community or circumstances we were born into. As I read Kazi’s mission statements, I was impressed by how this company not only sells beautiful handmade goods to a ready market in wealthy nations, but does so in a way that offers dignity and a living wage to the artisans. This is a mission I can get behind. Thank you for the opportunity to test this table plate, and introducing me to a company I feel great about supporting!

    Sturdy and well-made!

    When I opened this 10" decorative table plate, I was pleasantly surprised at how solidly it is made. It is woven very tightly and smoothly, so it lays completely flat and feels as though it will be very durable. The texture is pleasant both to look at and to feel. It is a lovely addition to my table decor for autumn, but could easily be used year-round. It would be a unique gift to share with a hostess, or to use as a raffle prize. My favorite aspect of this item is that it really was made in Africa. Knowing that each purchase helps a woman to support her family makes me smile. It even has a faint scent of grassses, which is such a nice, authentic touch. I have never traveled overseas, but having a bit of African artistry here in my midwestern United States home is pretty special. Thank you to the Stellar Product Testing Panel for letting me try this decorative table plate!

    Beautiful piece of art

    I received this product through the Stellar Product Testing Panel, and couldn’t be more excited to check it out. The colors are so beautiful, the smell is so earthy and the most awesome thing is to learn that it was made by a beautiful, powerful woman named Christine, who can feed and clothe her children by doing this for All Across Africa. I have already used this several times as a plate to serve my Madeleines or to put a hot pot.
