These trendy disc earrings are made by a group of female weavers from Rwanda. They are made with all-natural sisal fibers, using an age old basket weaving technique to create lightweight discs that feel elegant to wear. Completing the look, the hoops are fastened onto hypoallergenic earring hooks. These ladies have been weaving together for over 10 years. Enjoy their crafts-womanship.

The women of the Abarikumwe Association are remarkable, delightful, and visionary. The group began in 2006 through the contagious determination of two neighbors, Yusta and Christine. These women were tired of weaving alone and selling their crafts for a fraction of their worth. They set their minds to inviting other women to come together, to learn together, to earn together. Over the past ten years, the group has grown in strength and determination. Weaving together once a week in a parish chapel, the women have exchanged skills and generated creative ideas for designing new products, managing daily stresses, and reaching out to their community. These friends have endured many struggles, and it is a privilege to partner with them and learn from them.
