Planter Basket

The planter basket is crafted by women in Kwazulu Natal using a traditional Zulu weaving technique. It is made from palm river reed and wire which creates bumps and bends that the weavers do not straighten, giving the finished piece its organic shape.The black is attained by soaking the palm fiber with rusty tins for 2 weeks and then being boiled with the leaves of the weeping boer-bean tree. Due to its handmade nature, no two baskets are alike.
