Aura Woven Bowls - White
Simple in its design but powerful in its impact, the Local + Lejos Collection Aura Bowl is handmade using ancient grass-weaving techniques by our artisan women in Rwanda. The Aura bowls¬†are the perfect way to bring a pop of tradition into any space.
Pair with the Aura Flat Wall Hanging for a multi-dimensional effect.
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 Aura bowls are made by artisans from the Abizeranye Cooperative. We invite you learn more about them here.
