Designed by Artisans & Adventurers, woven by artisans in Rwanda, these coasters provide financial independence for families struggling with disabilities throughout Africa.
Meaning LOVE in Swahili - we love our Upendo Coasters to bits and pieces!
ARTISANS & VALUES
Our coasters have been designed by us and so are exclusive to Artisans & Adventurers. We took inspiration from traditional Rwandan designs, giving them a more graphic, modern twist.
The weavers we work with are all part of a community-based cooperative in Southern Rwanda, working to socially improve their livelihoods and keep the art of weaving alive. Through the sharing of skills, artisans are trained in art and crafts, keeping these incredible hand weaving skills alive in these modern times of mechanised manufacture.

Materials: Sisal grass, Poly-cotton Thread.
Rwandan coasters are famously robust and versatile.
To clean your Rwandan coaster, simply wipe clean with a damp cloth or sponge, remove most of the moisture with a dry towel and leave to air dry naturally.
Avoid placing your Rwandan coaster in direct sunlight as this may cause some of the colours to fade.
