No one else has the variety of baskets that you have accumulated. I did my research. And no one else has the consistent quality. People with baskets of their own come up and talk with me and several of the baskets do not have the double strand twist and those that do, do not have the vibrant dyes.



The basket that I ordered for my daughter's Christmas present arrived yesterday. It is beautiful, the colors are so perfect, and they look just like the picture. The basket is sturdy, and the handles are very well made. Thank you so much!

About the weavers

The Zulu people have long been associated with their skill and artistry in fashioning baskets from plants and grasses. The idea to use recycled telephone wire for baskets reportedly came from security workers in South African factories.
