Protection item turns in design object
Do you know the story behind the Tutsi bangle? The Tutsi population wore these hand-made ‘wrist protectors’ to protect themselves against bruises from the recoil of the strings of the bow and arrow. Like many other objects from Africa, a functional accessory.
Many people know Rwanda only from the bad stories in the newspapers, especially from the nineties. But the country and the people have so much to offer. The small country in East Africa has only an area of 26,338 km² and is a few degrees south of the equator. The hilly landscape of Rwanda is covered with beautiful rolling grassland and small farms. The Mountain Gorilla is currently attracting many tourists to Rwanda.
