  • These intricate one-of-a-kind "izimbenge" baskets are crafted by Master Zulu weavers in South Africa with strands of repurposed telephone wire. These visually stunning baskets represent a traditional craft updated with modern synthetic materials.

    The 11.5"D x 1""T baskets are hand-woven from telephone wire and require several days of labor to create. The baskets feature a concave center and are dense to the touch.

    Displayed on a plate holder (not included), the baskets are an attractive accent piece for any home and can also be used for for serveware.

  • 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.
