The embroideries on this page are part of the traveling exhibit, Pax Rwanda: Embroideries of the Women of Savane Kabuye. The collection is owned and curated by Juliana Meehan, a New Jersey educator who supports Savane Rutongo-Kabuye’s work. Through Rutongo Embroideries LLC, she purchases the works at prices set by the workshop and exhibits them in the U.S. Her exhibit has been featured at the Museum of African Art of the SMA Fathers in Tenafly, NJ; The Textile Museum in Washington, DC; The Puffin Foundation in Teaneck, NJ; Mark Miller Gallery in New York, NY and other art spaces. Selected works are available for sale.
The women of Savane Rutongo-Kabuye and Christiane Rwagatare, the Founder and Creative Director of the workshop, have won awards for their work in Rwanda, and their embroideries are displayed in their national Rwesero Art Museum at Nyanza. Only recently have they received attention outside of Rwanda.
