Each of these wine coasters, made from traditional Dutch cloth, is carefully sewn with foot-powered sewing machines. These would make wonderful gifts.
This basket has such a bright and happy color combination; it reminds me of the sun. Each of the colors is dyed naturally by plant or tea leaves. This is bound to make you smile every time you see it.
This is the perfect ethnic piece to add to any cocktail party. These woven coasters are handcrafted with needles and traditional threads. My favorite part is that you can see the complex work that went into making them.

This ageseke basket represents a piece of historical significance in Rwanda: the reconciliation of the 1994 genocide. The two lines represent two women walking together hand in hand, stopping to meet a friend before moving onward. This is a piece of home decor that represents hope.
The large, bold patterns on the cloth of this wine bag are so interesting. They make the textile look so cultural. Tied on the top with a drawstring, these wine bags are great little pouches for storing wine.
