Zulu Ceremonial Basket 001 (X Large)
These baskets are hand woven by Zulu women in Zululand, KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa as a part of a co-operative. The skills of basketry in Zululand continue to be passed down from generation to generation and remain a reliable source of income for artisans and their families, where some baskets are among the most collectable in the world. Always one-of-a-kind, they are finely woven from local grasses and commonly very decorative with natural dyes created from roots, barks, aloe, berries, mud and even boiled cow dung.
An oversized pot style basket featuring a fitted lid and unique geometric pattern, a collectable, strong and beautiful basket.
This Zulu Ceremonial Basket measures 50cm diameter (widest) x 16cm diameter (at opening) x 52cm high.
