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. It is a wonderful option for creating or adding to your bowl wall.

Description

All Azizi Life woven bowls are created from dyed natural sisal fibers 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 color is created when the naturally-white sisal fibers are steeped in Rwandan-grown tea leaves!

  • Artisans work 1-2 days to weave a small bowl and 2-3 days to weave a medium bowl.
