I received the Restorative Woven Bowl through the Stellar Product Testing Panel. It is very well made and the rich colors blended in perfect with existing art and a table in my office. There are 4 loops for hanging, making it easy to rotate to get the look you want. I love that the artisan’s story was included on the back of the bowl. I also love that the company is committed to sustainability and providing a living wage to women all over the world. I look forward to adding a few more pieces to my wall.
I’m so impressed by the craftsmanship of this beautiful 14” woven bowl that I received from the Stellar Product Testing Panel. It truly is a piece of art. I thought about using this in the kitchen to hold fruit because it’s surprisingly sturdy, but with it’s vibrant colors and texture, along with it’s lovely sweet grass smell, I just had to display it on the wall. It arrived with a book showing how to hang in various designs by using the loops on the back. The bowl itself had a tag with a photo of Eulerie, the Rwandan women who wove the bowl. This was a nice personal touch which inspired me to go to Kazi’s website to read more about these amazing women and their beautiful craft. I will be purchasing more of these woven goods for both myself and to give as gifts. We’ll done!
I love when things look even better in person and that is certainly the case with this gorgeous artisan bowl. The colors are beautiful and the design pattern is simple yet stunning. The weave is tight and flawless. I am proud to have it hanging on my wall, for now. I am thinking about making it the center piece on my dining table. I've received compliments and am proud to point out that it came from KAZI, who supports artisans with fair wages (not a massed produced chain item). Thank you to Stellar for allowing me to test this product as part of their panel.
I received this woven bowl as part of the Stellar Product Testing Panel. I've been looking for decorative pieces to display and this certainly meets the need and even better yet, matches my home decor. I love the earthy tone it has with it's beautiful colors and materials used. The bowl came with a booklet of ideas on how to create a beautiful wall display. Since I only have one bowl, I opted to a table centerpiece and filled it with cinnamon pinecones for the fall/winter season. The material used and the way it's woven seems as though it is very sturdy and will last a very long time, even in a kid-friendly and pet-friendly home. Since I've displayed it, I've received compliments from everyone who has visited! Kazi's mission is inspiring and I hope more companies follow their path to help improve the African nation, reduce poverty, all with such amazing, beautiful talent. I am sharing my thoughts to all my friends and family to expand support to such an uplifting cause.
I received this 14' woven bowl from the Stellar Product Testing Panel. When I opened the box, I was presently surprised at the quality of the bowl. It's a handmade product from Rwanda, and wonderfully made. The bowl itself is heavier than expected but very sturdy. Currently, it's on our front console table, so we put mail and keys in it when we walk in the door. It has already gotten several compliments from friends and family. overall it's a pretty neutral bowl, but there are some great pops of color woven into the bowl, and lucky enough it matches my color palette at home. It's very sleek and modern, but at the same time a bit of a boho type vibe, which we are transitioning into. It will go well with a lot of color palettes. I highly recommend this design as a great eye-catching decor item, but also a great way to organize all the stuff you walk in the front door with and don't want to just drop and scatter everywhere. There are also small loops woven into the back of the basket, so you can hang this and turn it into wall art as well. The great design along with the companies sustainability mission makes this a truly great item!
