This sisal, woven trivet is handmade by our artisans in Gitarama, Rwanda in East Africa. The women use sisal plants, extract the fibers, then hand-dye and weave them into these beautiful works of art. Each sisal trivet comes with a string attached to the back so that you can hang it on the wall. In addition to being a trivet for warm foods, it can also be beautifully hung. You can combine them with other baskets or works of art to make a wall collage.
