What are handwoven peace baskets?
These beautiful “Agaseke” hand-woven peace baskets are expertly crafted from sisal, and sweet grass through techniques passed down over centuries. They are known as “Peace Baskets” as a symbol of newfound peace for Rwanda following the historical genocide and mass destruction.
Who crafts our handwoven peace baskets?
In collaboration with partners across all regions of Africa, The Kigali Project works with women who have been victims of the brutal aftermath of genocide throughout Rwanda. Currently, the project supports over 70 African female artisans who can continue to better support their families, children, and communities through their work.

Who crafts our handwoven cotton travel accessories?
Exclusively handmade by local artisans in the heart of Burkina Faso who are part of Sahelian, a low-income country with limited natural resources, yet also home to incoming Malian refugees.

The Re-Bijoux Collection
Handmade Jewellery Crafted from Natural Materials
Why do we offer handcrafted jewellery?
We understand the significance that a piece of jewellery holds. It represents a memory, a moment, a time in our lives where we want to communicate our love and connection through something beautiful. However, we believe that the story should begin before the gifting, which is why our Re-Bijoux collection is clouded in history.
Who crafts our intricate designs?
The Re-Bijoux Collection is handmade by our incredibly talented artisans that reside in Tibet, Nepal. After facing conflict from the ongoing Chinese invasion for over 70 years, local artisans have found comfort in crafting designs that tell their family story.
