Xhosa Reed Basket - Black Stripe


These beautiful, organically shaped baskets are handwoven by the Xhosa women in the eastern cape of South Africa. Made from river reed native to the area, baskets of this shape and style are traditionally used for collecting grains and other crops.  Their free form shape makes each basket unique with sculptural like qualities, this particular piece is woven with a black recycled plastic detail for a less traditional look.

Measures approx 33cm across top, 18cm across base x 32cm high. Give or take 3cm as each is unique.
