Where it's made

Where it's made

“We’ve set out to change the face of poverty in this lifetime, not just for the future generations of those we serve.” From this, KAZI was born, focused on creating unique, beautiful products for the world to admire from talented artisans in remote regions previously without market access. “We believe women and men in rural areas in Africa can be agents of change for themselves, their families, and their access to global markets. Their talents and gifts are incredible.” At KAZI, we’re equipping and empowering women and men to succeed beyond their biggest dreams. Now, these women and men send their kids to school without traditional aid, through their own hard work.
How it's made

How it's made

Baskets are made from sisal leaves and sweet grass. The sisal plant is grown throughout Rwanda, making sisal an accessible renewable resource. Stripping the sisal leaves reveals the natural white threads within the plant. After the sisal material is prepared, dyes are mixed with water to soak the sisal, achieving the perfect color. Then, the dyed sisal fibers are hung like laundry to dry. After the materials have been prepared, a basket is ready to come to life. Sisal fibers are wound around thin bundles of sweet grass. With a sturdy needle, the sisal is secured stitch by stitch into a tiny seashell-like coil. As the process continues, the coil grows, incorporating differently colored sisal threads and careful patterns or designs.
