KITWARO RACLETTE BASKET | URU DESIGN (black)
Product Size: 16cm (w) + 30cm (h)
#Days to weave: 4
Our Kitwaros make beautiful baskets for keeping your „Gschwellti“ (hot potatoes) warm during your Raclette. The Kiwaros thus combine the rich Tanzanian weaving culture with our lovely Raclette tradition. Each Kitwaro comes with a washable cotton bag insert for the potatoes.
The Kitwaros are handmade by Burundian refugee artisans. For this Kitwaro, white threads of upcycled “Gunia” grain sacks are intricately woven into the natural grasses basket. 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.
