Rwanda Agaseke Basket

The Agaseke Basket is so endemic to Rwanda that it is featured in the national seal and on Rwandan currency - truly a symbol of hope for a brighter future.

Agaseke crafts are produced  in Rwanda by women organised in different  cooperatives. Rwanda has a long history and culture of making beautiful handcraft items. Customarily woven by women, the Agaseke is known for its impressive quality and associated cultural traditions. Agaseke basket is a decorating gift item that families in Rwanda give to their daughters during marriage ceremonies. It is a precious feminine gift that has connotations of beauty and love. It takes several days for women weavers to make each basket and the process is often meticulous and requires invariable attention to detail.
