The Agaseke, Rwanda's oldest traditional basket, is now called the Peace Basket, as it has become a symbol of unity to the post-genocide nation. The Agaseke was traditionally used for transporting gifts. Today, it is a cultural emblem that represents generosity, gratitude, and compassion. These St. Frank ornaments are created in the same traditional weaving technique of the Agaseke. They are handmade by women whose family members were either killed in the 1994 genocide or are imprisoned for genocide-related crimes. Weaving has provided the women with socioeconomic opportunity and rebuilt a devastated community. May these ornaments offer peace and hope for a brighter future!
