These beautiful storage boxes are handmade from hand-gathered local banana leaves and stalks.
To create these boxes, artisans begin with dried leaves from their banana trees. They remove the surface of the leaf, divide it into strips, then weave the chevron design. The black color leaf is from a special kind of banana tree. The box’s lining is removable and sewn on a pedal-powered sewing machine.
Handmade with love in Rwanda ♥
The Chevron Banana Leaf Stacking Trays are made by artisans with Azizi Life, an organization that participates in local initiatives for the development of Rwandan communities working towards physical and spiritual wholeness for all. Azizi believes that God cares deeply about each person's physical well-being and relationships with one another, as well as relationships with Him. Azizi sees the brokenness of the world- both in ""the West"" as well as in their home country of Rwanda - and believes that it is only through a relationship with Jesus Christ that true healing, wholeness – and development – can be found.
Stacking trays measure approximately: 12” x 12” x 12”
