Description

The Zulus are the largest tribe in South Africa with spectacular weaving skills, hand crafting everything from jewelry, matting, furnishings, tableware and basketware. These items were bought on a trip to South Africa, and KwaZulu Natal in particular, to.visit family living there at the time. I would like to sell these as a set, and have an original card explaining about the materials used, designs and uses of the different baskets. They make an amazing display - whether wall mounted or on a side table/shelving. The items include: Ukhamba (also known as a beer basket) - A tightly woven lidded basket woven to carry water or, as often as not, home-brewed beer. Isiquabetho - Large baskets used for gathering and carrying grain. Smaller bowls are generally used for serving. The baskets are all made with different local grasses and reeds. It says 'Cotton & Wool' in the Material section as there was no option available for the correct material 😬 The largest basket measures 19"x19" The large star-patterned basket measures 15.5"x15.5" The smaller star-patterned basket measures 10"x10" The smaller cream/brown basket measures 11.75"x11.75" The beer basket is 9.5" round x 7" high
