Small Black Friendship Cathedral

$ 38.00

This cathedral-shaped basket is the signature vessel of Rwanda, the “friendship” basket. Also known as the agaseke basket, it is a symbol of generosity, gratitude and compassion, and embodies giving. Thus, agaseke baskets are commonly given to friends, family members or hosts at significant life events.

It is just the right size to serve bread, display fruits and vegetables or to hang on the wall in a curated grouping.

  • Approximately 4.5” tall and 4.5” wide
  • Made in Rwanda
  • Product is made from all natural fibers of sisal and sweet grass and organic dyes
  • Safe to use with food

*All products are made by hand with love and vary slightly in color and size. 

 

All Across Africa seeks to empower citizens of underprivileged and rural African communities by helping them establish rewarding careers as artisans. Each basket is woven by talented artisans in Uganda and Rwanda, where the very skill is a product of tradition passed down from mother to child. The traditional styles, shapes, and designs hold symbolism defined in the history of the craft.
