Kici Rwanda is an art and craft store that specializes in handmade home decorations, such as basket floor racks, carpets, lamps, and bags. What sets Kici Rwanda apart from other stores is that all their products are handmade by women artisans in rural Rwanda. Founded during the pandemic, Kici Rwanda’s goal is to change lives and create opportunities for local communities across Rwanda.
Working with ten groups of artisans based throughout the country, Kici Rwanda’s main workshop is based in the south, with their main gift shop located in Kigali. Their products are made from locally-grown materials, such as banana fibers and raffia, and are available in various colors and patterns.
One of Kici Rwanda’s most unique products is its handmade rugs and carpets, which can be made in any size and shape, and in various colors and patterns. Each rug is crafted with care and precision, making them a perfect addition to any home.
In addition to its rugs and carpets, Kici Rwanda also offers a range of other handmade products, such as table mats, baskets, and lamps. Their table mats are available in various materials, including a mix of banana fibers and sisal, and can be made in different sizes and patterns. Their baskets are a beautiful addition to any wall, and their lamps are available in various sizes and designs, including bedside lamps and floor lamps with fabric tops.
