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.
These baskets are unusual because they are woven from the top down, rather than from the bottom up.
The wholesale order arrived yesterday. I'm writing to say thank you. I LOVE the baskets. The Zulu large flared bowl is breathtaking. I'm proud to carry the baskets and appreciate your selectivity. Also, I like the information sheets. They answer nearly every question. Thank you again for sending such beautiful baskets in the wholesale order!
The box of baskets arrived Monday, as you said they would, and the selection is great.
