These baskets are unusual because they are woven from the top down, rather than from the bottom up.

Weaving Zulu Wire Baskets in South Africa

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.

I thought if the baskets were anything like what I saw on the Internet, they were going to be spectacular...they are even better. Oh my Gosh! I can't believe how beautiful these are! These are incredible works of art and will be treated as such in our home and I am sure that I will be buying more from you in the future… Thanks for making my day!

My wife LOVES the two baskets I got her for Christmas... too much... She won't use them. She just wants them for decorations. I wanted to replace old baskets with really pretty ones. oh well. :)
