Beaded Diamond Agaseke Peace Basket

$ 162.00

Made by the Agatako Cooperative in Rwanda, these baskets are a sign of reconciliation, peace, and hope for the future. The Agatako women are among the few who still know the ancient art of agaseke, a form of weaving from palm leaf that was once reserved for the king.

This agaseke basket is completely hand beaded in black and white beads, a process that takes over a month to complete. These tightly woven baskets made of marsh reed, papyrus, and sisal are beautiful and functional pieces that provide a means of breaking the cycle of poverty in rural Rwandan villages.

  • Materials: Marsh reed, papyrus, sisal, and black and white beads
  • Measurements: 10.5" H x 6" W
  •  Handcrafted in Rwanda

This product is made by Indego Africa, an award-winning non-profit social enterprise that supports women-owned businesses in Rwanda. All profits fund educational training programs for Indego Africa's women.
