Paper Bowls

The women of Nakwero and Dream line Africa make exquisite bowls crafted from rolled papers. The colors are lovely blended in coordinating colors or multicolor. The bowls can be used for holding little desk items, jewelry, keys, etc., but not for wet items or unwrapped food. While they are durable, they do not like water and need to be surface cleaned with a damp cloth. These bowls come in three sizes.

Small
Medium
Large

Woven Sisal Bowls Photo 1

Woven Sisal Bowls with African Fabric

With the colorful African fabric woven through the traditional sisal basket, these bowls become a work of art. These fabrics are used for the traditional Ugandan women’s dresses and remind us of the impact these bowls can have when they become a source of economic improvement. These can be washed with a damp cloth but do not like too much water. Suitable for use as a storage container but lovely just as a decoration.

$14.00

Mini Peace Baskets

Small replicas of Rwandan peace baskets created after the genocide to foster new partnerships in the wake of devastation and hatred. They represent generosity, compassion, and forgiveness. Traditionally they have been used to carry wedding gifts to the new couple. They are made from a delicate small sisal fiber in basic colors and come with a small string hanger.  Suitable for a holiday decoration or a container for any small item reminding us all of our shared humanity.
