These intricate, one-of-a-kind Zulu baskets are handcrafted in South Africa using woven Ilala palm, which is naturally dyed to create beautifully natural tones. Featuring a fitted lid and beautiful pattern, each is unique and artfully crafted. Large baskets can take more than a month to hand-weave!

Bulb-shaped zulu baskets, called ukhamba, are traditionally used to carry liquids, like home-brewed beer. When liquid is poured into the ukhamba, the basket fibers swell to become watertight; the outside of the basket sweats, cleverly keeping the liquid cool by evaporation. The baskets are usually very decorative and colorful, with natural dyes created from roots, barks, aloe, berries, mud, and even boiled cow dung.

One of a kind. Measures 17" D x 21" T.

About the Artisans:

These gorgeous baskets are handwoven by women of the Zulu tribe in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa. Woven primarily by women, Zulu baskets are a traditional handicraft and a reliable source of income for artisans and their families. Handwoven using materials including Ilala palm and ncebe (banana bark), the intricate weave and patterning of the baskets make them both durable and beautiful.

Interweaving natural and dyed grasses to create intricate patterns, Tanzanian artisans hand-craft these stylish baskets. The baskets are named for the weaver, Maila, who perfected the new woven design.

These all-natural baskets are handwoven from milulu, a reed-like grass that grows near the city of Iringa, Tanzania. The milulu makes durable baskets, which can be rinsed with cool water and reshaped as needed.

Sold individually; choose from 3 sizes. Approximate measurements: Small 10" wide x 10" tall; Medium 12" wide x 12" tall; Large 13" wide x 13" tall. Because this product is handmade, size and design placement will vary.

About the Artisans:

Tanzanian woman artisan, weaving Maila baskets

Vikapu Bomba embodies the vision of Catherine Shembilu to create sustainable income for talented, rural Tanzanian women. For many women living in the lush southern highlands, life centers around subsistence farming, cooking, cleaning, and caring for children. Women can weave baskets between their other duties, working daily to earn money to pay school fees, buy food, procure farming supplies and contribute to savings. When a woman has money of her own to use or share, she has greater influence over her life and future.

Milulu grass reeds can be harvested carefully from the marsh without removing the entire plant. The reeds are dried in the sun, dyed with natural dyes, and split for weaving. The closeness to the earth of both maker and product gives these beautifully crafted baskets natural appeal.

Packed with antioxidants, whole leaf peppermint and lemongrass team up in this delicious and revitalizing JusTea® blend. Cool and refreshing with notes of mint and sweet lemon, caffeine-free Peppermint Detox soothes a sore throat, while lemongrass helps with tummy troubles and iron absorption. Members of a Kenyan women's coop handpick the organic lemongrass in this blend, so your tea purchase directly benefits their employment.

JusTea is dedicated to maintaining the whole tea leaf rather than the normal maceration which destroys much of the leaf’s natural complexities and depth. This allows the tea to be steeped multiple times, retaining the full flavor profile that whole leaf tea offers.

Each 45g tin includes a hand-carved wooden spoon and makes about 40 cups or when re-steeping, 80 cups. Steeping Instructions: 1 teaspoon of tea per cup of 205°F water for 3-5 mins.

See all teas in our African Coffee & Tea Collection.

The Bain family from Canada partnered with the Katah family and the Nandi Hills community in Kenya to establish JusTea®, Kenya's first-ever, small-scale farmer-owned Artisanal Tea Factory. Fully staffed, managed, and owned by small-scale Kenyan tea farmers, JustTea was granted one of the first tea processing licenses to produce these artisanal, direct-from-farm teas by The Tea Board of Kenya. The tea farm is nestled in the rolling green Nandi Hills where its volcanic soil naturally produces some of the world's most flavourful tea. This small specialty factory processes a rainbow of teas: Purple, Green, Oolong and Black artisanal teas.

Oryx is 100% pure, crystal white, natural desert salt that is harvested from a salt pan in the pristine Kalahari Desert. Salt water from an ancient underground brine lake is drawn into the salt pan and sun-dried, suffusing the salt with essential minerals and trace elements that have been balanced within the earth over millions of years. Beautiful colorant-free smoke flavor is achieved by smoking the salt over French oak shavings for 18 hours.

Oryx Desert Salt's recyclable glass bottles include durable ceramic grinder heads, so each bottle can be replenished repeatedly with economical refill boxes.

Size: 3.52 oz, 100g. A portion of profits from Oryx Desert Salt benefit the Khomani San and Mier communities of the Kalahari Desert.

Kalahari desert salt pan, the source of Oryx salt
