Since wire baskets are woven by many men due to the difficult nature of weaving wire, they are able to stay home on their tribal lands instead of moving to cities to look for work. In the rural groups we work with, the family units are preserved so that the weavers and their families can live more traditional lifestyles.
It was hard to decide between them. They are all very beautiful. I love the basket I have by Nomkhosi Nkosi. It is displayed prominently in my living room. It's inspiring to have such amazing pieces of art in my home!
I just got my baskets today and I'm very pleased. Great site, service, and experience.
