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.
- The bold, pointed pattern on the dancer basket is conjures the full, sharp movements and brilliant costumes of East African dancers spinning to a drummer's beat. East African dances often tell stories and pay tribute to life-giving commodities and animals. Young girls in Rwanda perform the harvest dance during the festival of Umuganura to celebrate first fruits; the dance's flowing arm movements show off the women's beautiful grace. 

Each Global Shokunin product is unique and made by hand using traditional techniques. Slight variations in size and color are normal due to the natural materials, and handwoven nature of these products. Enjoy and show off your eclectic taste!
