The Vestine Trivet - a beautiful handmade addition to any kitchen. Each trivet begins with the gathering of forest grasses and large sisal leaves. Once the sisal fibers have been extracted from the leaf, cleaned, dyed, and dried, the artisans are ready to begin. The sisal fibers are threaded around and around a core of forest grasses, the design taking shape bit by bit. In the end, you have a beautiful and useful addition to your dinner table. Handmade with love in Rwanda ♥
Our Vestine Trivets 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.
