The Kwasi Amulet Necklace by mille collines features a large woven sisal disc in a one of a kind mille collines pattern framed in a brass mounting with a rope chord.
These handcrafted statement pendant necklaces are made of a sisal disc handwoven by women weavers in Kigali and they are then mounted in a hand carved brass setting in Nairobi.
The Kwasi Amulet Necklace has Sisal, natural fibre, derived from the leaves of the ‘agave sisalana’ cactus plant; it is commonly used in Rwanda for the weaving of baskets, carpets and has also been used in traditional architecture.

This piece is elegant and bold and comes in two unique designs:
