Akaneri Woven Bowl- Black Diamonds
The Akaneri Woven Bowl is a handcrafted fair trade beauty! Azizi Life is a fair trade organization which partners with Rwandan artisans to bring beautifully designed, hand crafted goods to the world.
For the design of the Akaneri series, Local + Lejos designer Sheeva took a truly traditional pattern of the Abizeranye Cooperative in Rwanda and tweaked the colors to fit perfectly into a modern home. The Akaneri design now includes pieces from the Natural Neutrals Collection and the Indigo Collection. With so many color variations, it is a wonderful option for creating or adding to your bowl wall.
- Our hand woven bowls are crafted from natural sisal fibers threaded over a core of locally-gathered forest grasses.
- Artisans work 1-2 days to weave a small bowl and 2-3 days to weave a medium bowl.
- Dimensions: small bowl 7″d, medium bowl 12″d.
- Care: Wipe with a dry cloth.
Across the hills of Rwanda, groups of rural artisans are working to bring hope to their families through skillfully handcrafted goods. Azizi Life partners with over 30 independent groups- a total of over 500 artisan partners. Rising from the horrors of genocide, artisans from all backgrounds have joined together once again through their craft. Each artisan cooperative specializes in hand crafting products using specific techniques and raw materials. Azizi Life is honored to partner with these women and men, collaborating to connect makers, designers, and customers around the world.
We love serving your vision for beauty and meaning in the gifts you give, what you wear, and how you decorate. Azizi Life serves as a bridge, partnering with artisans and designers to offer high quality, ethically-sourced goods for life and gifting. Products are crafted by hand using local, natural, and renewable materials.
As a not-for-profit organization, Azizi Life is dedicated to the wellbeing of our artisan partners and their families. In addition to opening economic opportunity through fair trade, Azizi Life invests in a range of community impact projects. Our Rwandan-led team facilitates adult literacy classes and offers other practical resources for personal, spiritual, and economic growth.
