These incredible baskets are still woven in the countryside of KwaZulu Natal, but the Zulu’s living in urban areas have invented a new kind of basket, the Imbenge Basket, woven entirely of recycled plastic coated telephone wire.
Zulu weavers have taken the intricate designs and incredible craftsmanship of their natural fiber baskets, and turned them into brightly-colored art from plastic-coated wire. This vase shape is very unusual but does not hold water – it’s great for dried flowers, or you can place a similar shaped container inside if you’d like to display fresh flowers.
Mesmerizing designs and vibrant colors are a hallmark of this functional art. Wash gently with warm soapy water.
