Restorative Woven Bowl12" Abstract

Handmade in Rwanda

Beautiful, multi-purpose decorative bowl for wall art and table top storage.

Soothing tones meet the intrigue of abstract design in this exquisite and versatile piece.

Attractive yet humble, this piece is happy to share the attention in basket wall arrangement but special enough to stand alone.

Specifications
  • Fair Trade, Nest Seal of Transparency
  • Profiled weaver tag is attached to each product

  • Organic dyes are used to dye the fibers prior to weaving

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.

Care Instructions
Cleaning
  • Made of natural fibers and grass; do not submerge in water.
  • If necessary, use a damp cloth to wipe or spot clean.
  • After serving bread or other dried foods, turn the product upside down: shake and tap to release crumbs and residue.
  • Avoid using chemicals or detergents.
Fading
  • Due to being all natural fibers, keep dyed products out of direct sunlight for long periods of time to avoid natural fading.
  • All natural products with little or no coloring do well in direct sunlight.

    Fantastic decorative piece with sustainable origins

    I received this 12 inch woven bowl as part of the Stellar Testing Panel, and it’s quickly found a special place in my living room. I use it on my side table as a place to hold coasters, keys, or other trinkets. The colors are so vibrant, but don’t look fake or tacky at all! Very natural. The bowl is excellent quality — it definitely seems like something you would find at an artisanal market, not just from any home goods store. I especially appreciate Kazi’s commitment to sustainable and ethical production, as that is something that means a lot to me when considering my purchases. I will definitely buy from them in the future! Overall, very satisfied.

    Gorgeous Bowl!

    I love this beautifully made bowl! The craftsmanship is stellar and it’s a very sturdy bowl that can be used for numerous things. I will likely use it with added decor in my kids’ playroom. The colors are soft and fun. This is definitely a bowl we’ll have that will last for years! Also, the mission behind Kazi gives me even more reason to love them. I love a brand that gives back! I did receive this bowl as a part of the Stellar Product Testing Panel.

    Decorative and Functional Bowl

    I was given this 12" woven bowl to try as part of the Stellar Product Testing Panel. It is lovely as either a functional or decorative piece. It can be hung on a wall, but the loop doesn’t interfere if it’s flat on a table. The craftsmanship is great. I keep it on my coffee table as a landing zone for remotes. I love the vivid colors and rich texture. The fibers had a strong smell when I first received the bowl, but the smell dissipated after a week or so. I would absolutely recommend this bowl to someone looking for an eye-catching pop of color.

    Beautiful Craftsmanship!

    This bowl is beautiful! It is well-made and is truly a piece of art. I currently have it displayed on my ottoman but it can easily be hung it up on the wall (there is a small loop on the back for hanging) to show off it’s beauty. It adds a nice amount of color to my neutral room and would work well in a variety of color schemes. Although I am keeping this one for myself, it would make a fabulous gift! It came carefully packaged and includes a tag featuring one of the weavers and explains how she is able to support herself and her family through her weaving. Thank you to the Stellar Product Testing Panel for sending me this bowl! I loved learning about the company and it’s mission of supporting artisans. I will be ordering more as gifts!
