The weavers depend on basket income to sustain themselves beyond what food they grow as subsistence farmers. They often use the money earned to pay school fees for their children.
In Southern Zimbabwe, basket weavers use thick, heavy coils to weave sturdy coiled baskets from sisal and local grasses.
Thanks for rapid fulfillment of order and excellent service! Baskets are beautiful and just about sold out before we even got them to the store! (office staff and friends). Will be ordering more soon, in hopes of actually getting them to our retail outlet!
WOW!! I am continuously amazed at the quality and exquisiteness of all your baskets. And that's coming from someone who is half Zulu and half iSwati.
