Alexia Woven Bowls
The large woven bowl is flat on the bottom and makes a beautiful tray for serving or display. Imagine the medium bowl on your dining room table filled with warm bread or fruit. The small bowl is a beautiful way to hold jewellery or keys or it may be filled with small treats and used as a gift basket. Each woven bowl has a loop on the back for hanging- the trio looks gorgeous on a blank wall.
All of our woven bowls are created from dyed natural sisal fibres woven over a core of forest grasses. The weavers begin in the middle of the basket, carefully threading the sisal around and around to create this beautiful design. The tea colour is created when the naturally-white sisal fibres are steeped in Rwandan-grown tea leaves!
The Alexia bowls are made by artisans from the Zamuka Cooperative. We invite you learn more about them here.
