Azizi Life Teardrop Basket
The Azizi Life Teardrop Basket is handcrafted by artisans of the Peace Baskets Cooperative using the same age-old techniques found in The National Museum of Rwanda. Lightweight and delicately woven, this basket makes both a beautiful piece of art as well as a vessel to store your various treasures and home goods. Not to mention, you can also find this Azizi Life Bariku Bowl sold at the Ellen Campus of Fossey Fund in Rwanda!
This product comes beautifully packaged in a handcrafted pouch along with a card that includes a description and photo of your basket.
About the Brand
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. As Rwanda transformed to peace through the tragedies of the 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.
About the The Ellen DeGeneres Campus of the Dian Fossey Fund
On June 7, 2022, Ellen and Portia helped celebrate the dedication of The Ellen DeGeneres Campus of the Dian Fossey Fund. The Ellen Campus, nestled in the foothills of Rwanda’s Volcanoes National Park, showcases environmentally conscious design, investments in local livelihoods and scientific capacity building, and support for Rwanda’s ecotourism sector. We are proud that the Azizi Life products you see on ellenshop.com are also sold at the Ellen Campus in Rwanda.
All of the work mentioned above has been supported through numerous generous donors, including ellenshop over the past four years.
