Intricately woven by Zulu Craftsmen, these urban versions of the grass and palm bowls originally made “back home” were started by Zulu men working in the mines, where they discovered offcuts of plastic covered telephone wire in a myriad of bright colours. They are ideally suited to weaving, being fine and flexible. The Zulu Telephone Wire work has gained international fame and has become very collectable.
This square basket is so useful, for holding a craft project in progress, bits and pieces or as a fruit bowl. These are beautiful unique high quality baskets that will remain attractive for years to come.
