Rwandan Woven Vase/Pot 'Cosmos'

Staring into the cosmos you begin to notice its simplicity and order but from afar it looks like wonderful burst of pattern and colour, available in two colour ways this more monochrome cosmos blends seamlessly with natural decor. A fun addition to your home, they can be used as utensil pots or place a small glass inside and use as a colourful vase.

Designed by Artisans & Adventurers, woven by artisans in Rwanda, these coasters provide financial independence for families struggling with disabilities throughout Africa.  


Our vases 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.

Rwandan woven vase pots are famously robust and versatile. 

To clean your Rwandan vase pot, 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 vase pot in direct sunlight as this may cause some of the colours to fade.
