Large Woven Pot with Lid
The color of this woven pot is created when the naturally-white sisal fibers are steeped in Rwandan tea leaves. The sisal fibers are then woven around locally-gathered forest grasses until the twist pattern is formed. The flat lid makes the woven pot useful for storage, or even stacking.

Description

Located in a small village just off the main North-South road in Huye, Rwanda, Cooperative Agaseke K’Amahoro is doing its part to heal the wounds left by the genocide. One of the first cooperatives to form in Rwanda after the genocide, Cooperative Agaseke K’Amahoro provides skills training and a source of income for the children of genocidaires serving prison terms for their crimes. Many of these children are of mixed ethnic descent. Spending a day at the small cooperative office, it is not uncommon to hear these young adults share stories of how fathers and uncles tried to kill them during the war to “cleanse” the family bloodline. Cooperative Agaseke K’Amahoro provides these survivors with an opportunity to change the course of their lives and contribute positively to the post-genocide Rwanda.
