This Raffia Tray has been handwoven by a Fair Trade women’s cooperative in Rwanda using locally sourced natural raffia and sweetgrass.
Each tray is crafted using a complex and meticulous process that produces an intricate, handmade design. The artisan uses a needle and thread to wrap raffia fibers over stems of dried sweetgrass into a durable tray that takes several days to complete.
Our Raffia Trays are sized well for serving drinks, breakfast in bed, or organizing a coffee table or dresser top. Every purchase directly supports our partner organization in Rwanda that provides training and fair wage jobs to promote sustainable and scalable opportunities for their cooperative of women weavers in rural villages.
This tray is 12" W x 16" L x 2.5" H.
Our Raffia Tray is a high quality handmade craft sourced directly from its maker. No two trays are exactly the same. Minor imperfections may be visible that speak to the handmade process and tell the story of its creator, adding to the character and patina of each piece.
All of our products are handcrafted using the finest natural materials. To prevent loosening the shape or weave of the tray, we recommend handling it with care and spot cleaning when necessary.
