Restorative Woven Bowl10" Stripe

Handmade in Rwanda

Restorative hues presented in organic patterning create calming visual attraction for wall, shelves or counters.

Balanced in natural woods tones, this peaceful piece is equally presentable as a solo statement or grouped.

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.

    Gorgeous and a perfect addition to my home!

    From the moment I opened the package, I was stunned by this piece. While it is intended to be hung on the wall, it actually fits the decor in my recently revamped dining room perfectly and I'm using it as a display item on a ladder shelf. The weave is beautiful, it's sturdy, and the colors have lovely depth and character. I added some small coordinating items I found in the dollar aisle for now, until I find what I would like to display long term. I love the mission of this company and the care the artisans have clearly put into their craft. Thank you to the Stellar Product Testing Panel for giving me the opportunity to test this product!

    Beautiful Craftmanship

    This handwoven bowl is truly a work of art. Th artisan put a lot of time into creating this masterpiece. It is displayed on a wall for my family and guests to enjoy. The colors beautifully match my living room with a soft green, dark green and tan. On the back of the bowl there are four hanging loops to choose various options to display the bowl. The bowl itself has about a 4" depth from the wall so it adds a texture to any display. Also, attached to the back of the bowl is a biography tag of the maker, info about the product and how to clean it. The bowl itself didn't arrive in any special packaging. It was simply in a white packing envelope without any type of protective wrapping. Thankfully the product was all intact without damage which speaks for the quality and durability of the bowl. Upon opening the package, there was a very strong odor of sweet hay or a grass of some sort. It wasn't a foul smell but it did remind me of being on a farm or in a hay barn. After being on display and out of the package, the smell dissipated. And after a few days, the odor was completely unnoticed. Included with the bowl was a booklet introducing the product, the makers and how to display the item with color photos of several items in varying sizes, depths and designs. On the inside back page of the booklet, it encourages customers to share designs on social media with a hashtag included. On the back cover is a webpage, email and contact phone number for Kazi. I think what Kazi is providing is a wonderful service. It creates a job and sense of self-worth for these makers while providing them wages for their goods. In return, consumers are able to display the beautiful work in their home or place of business. Thanks to the Stellar Product Testing Panel for providing me with this 10" woven bowl. I know have a beautiful piece of art work on display.

    Beautiful bowl

    I received this product from the Stellar Product Testing Panel in exchange for my honest review. This bowl is beautiful and sturdy, and I appreciate Kazi’s commitment to supporting artisans. I love the idea of hanging the bowl on a wall if I’d purchase more, but having just one I will probably use it more as a basket. The colors are beautiful and the bowl seems very well-made. It has 4 loops on the bottom for hanging on a wall if you want to display it. I really like the colors and will enjoy having this bowl in my home!
