    Story Behind the Art
    Indego Africa began its partnership with Covanya, a weaving cooperative with 43 members in Nyamata, Rwanda in August 2007. The women at Covanya weave the stunning plateau baskets, which can take 4 to 5 days to make and require constant attention to detail.
    Before partnering with Indego Africa, more than 85-percent of the women at Covanya supported an average family of six on $0.50 per day. They now earn four times that much.Indego Africa returns 100-percent of its profits from sales and donations to its partners in order to run culturally-tailored training programs in business management, entrepreneurship, computer skills, and literacy.

    This is a lovely red and off-white woven bowl (made in India). It even has a loop woven on the back should one wish to hang it on the wall. We purchased this for a condo we own in Arizona and it looks great with the other items we got from Overstock to furnish the place.
