No more baskets

The first shipment of Peace Baskets to Britain have now sold out. We are hoping to import more, or that an organisation will begin importing them to benefit AVEGA. If you think that you would like to have a basket, you should still get in touch with us, as knowing the demand will help us to decide how many to order.

Thanks to everyone who bought a basket - we hope you love them as much as we do!

Peace baskets have landed!

Peace Baskets are now on sale in the UK through Never Again. With the help of the Rwandan Embassy and Union Coffee, 40 baskets were brought to Britain to an enthusiastic reception. Most went before Christmas, but a few are still for sale for GBP10 each.

This Peace Basket is handwoven from coiled papyrus reeds by the members of AVEGA. Avega is a Rwandan survivors organisation formed by women affected by the genocide in 1994. Avega members weave Peacebaskets to symbolize the need for healing in their nation and to help support themselves and Rwanda's many orphans. Avega provides women and their children with emotional, financial and healthcare support including provision of anti-retroviral drugs for those members with HIV/AIDS.

All the money from the sale of the baskets will go to AVEGA. For more details or to buy a basket email
