Rwandan Baskets & Trays
Posted by Ellen Hess on 6th Feb 2023
We have seven new types of Rwandan baskets and trays available at Tango Zulu, brought to us by Azizi Life, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit based in Rwanda. Azizi Life has a strong commitment to sustainability and supporting local Rwandan community initiatives for the development of fair trade, helping rural artisans of Rwanda access the wider global market while maintaining standards of a family business, while partnering with local efforts to alleviate poverty in their community. Azizi Life, as a company, pays medical insurance to its craftspeople and provides school materials for children. Furthermore, they aid with agricultural sustenance; livestock and soil health, leading to reliable crop yields, wholesome nutrition, and brightening the future of their farms. These weavers have a stable livelihood with financial independence and security. The mission and values of the artisan group we source from, and the craftsmanship in these baskets, are equally as outstanding, and we are so proud to be in partnership with Azizi Life.
