This Kitwaro Basket is part of our MADE51 Collection, UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR)’s global brand of refugee-made products. It’s a traditional product shape used by households in Tanzania to store grains or bring gifts to friends and family. We’re now bringing this traditional shape to your modern home as a meaningful accent object and a stylish way to store your household belongings or dry foods, onions etc. For this Kitwaro Basket, white threads of upcycled “Gunia” grain sacks are intricately woven into the natural grasses.
As part of MADE51, WomenCraft works with Burundian refugee women who recently returned to their home communities after having spent several years living in refugee camps in Tanzania. Weaving with WomenCraft means that they can continue to generate income and maintain their livelihood as they return to Burundi. This particular Kitwaro Basket features the Uru design, symbolizing ‘Urugendo', the 'Journey' all refugees make to the camp - most fleeing their homes at night, braving the several day trek to Tanzania on foot crossing forests, rivers and mountains.
