African Zulu Izimbenge Monkey Bowl

  • Zulu craftswomen in South Africa tightly weave strands of telephone wire to create these decorative izimbenge plates. Each plate is one-of-a-kind and features unique artwork that highlights the pleasures of everyday life.

    The bowls represent a traditional craft updated with modern synthetic materials. Designed to be displayed on the wall or in a stand, these collectors' items are dense to the touch and long-lasting.

    Measures 12.5" diameter; size may vary slightly. Plate stand not included.

  • ZenZulu is a South African craft business organized by designer Marisa Fick-Jordaan. Once consisting of only two master weavers, the business taught unemployed women how to bead and weave, with an emphasis on telephone wire. Today, this highly regarded organization ensures sustainable incomes for more than 350 home based craft producers in four different communities.
