Rwanda Path to Peace baskets are a beautiful symbol of a community rebuilding. Last year, I wrote about the Heart of Haiti project supported by be Everywhere and I am proud to share these detailed baskets and the story behind them.
I love the colors in this basket. It is sturdy and strong so you know that it is a quality handmade product. It makes me feel like I am getting ready for fall. How appropriate that the name of the basket is Harvest Sun. You can use as a basket or it would also make a beautiful wall decoration. I think it also makes a great gift that comes with a story of hope. When you visit www.Macys.com/Rwanda, you will see the selection available. My other favorite is a red and white New Spirit Fruit Bowl. What I like most about the bowl is that it is a conversation piece about a project that is supporting women and turning their struggle into strength.
Here is more information about the basket:
What is Macy’s Rwanda Path to Peace?
Rwanda Path to Peace is a healing journey and a source of sustainable living that utilizes the incredible skill of weaving that is passed down by generations of Rwandan women. These women have seen their neighbors and their families destroyed by genocide and ethnic cleansing, leaving many of them broken and hopeless, lost in a country where women are considered second-rate citizens because of their gender. Although the genocide was over a decade ago, the recovery from a tragedy of this magnitude is a constant struggle. The sales of the baskets through Macy’s has given these women a source of sustainable income and pride.
