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.
