Symbolism and Design

- Baskets are symbolic of major life events in Rwanda and are gifted to friends and family to celebrate major life events such as weddings, births and graduations. Baskets are proudly displayed as symbols of wealth of friends, family and life.
-  This planter is inspired from the cathedral-shaped basket, the signature vessel of Rwanda, the "friendship" basket. It holds such important meaning in Rwanda's culture that it's featured on the country's national emblem. Also known as the Agaseke basket, it is a symbol of generosity, gratitude and compassion, and embodies giving. Thus, agaseke baskets are given to friends, family members, stuffed full of fresh and dried foods as a token of love.
- Beautifully made, baskets have a myriad of uses. "Savoring the world only takes place when you get along. The world makes no sense without friendship." Rwandan proverb
