Situated in the vibrant hills of Rwanda, Irebe Baskets collection is a social enterprise that specializes in traditional basket weaving. Our venture is not just about crafting gorgeous designs but weaving together the threads of female empowerment and community development.
With a commitment to uplifting women, we have created a nurturing space where talented female weavers hone their skills and contribute to the economic fabric of their communities.
Our approach goes beyond business; it’s about fostering a sense of pride and self-sufficiency. By working with local women, we aim to break gender barriers and promote equality, ensuring that their talents are recognized and rewarded. We believe that investing in women means investing in the community, and our enterprise actively supports education, healthcare, and other necessities.
In line with our commitment to environmental sustainability, we source indigenous raw materials, such as such as banana leaf, sisal, raffia, sweetgrass, and palm tree. This not only preserves the rich cultural heritage of Rwanda but also ensures that our products are eco-friendly.
