This beautiful Zulu wire basket is a beautiful combination of artistry and pragmatism. It is crafted from plastic coated electrical wires, and is approximately 2 1/2" deep by 6 3/4" in diameter, a good size for holding keys or coins. It has a multicolored swirl pattern accented with bare copper wire. It can be hand washed as needed.
If you order this basket you will receive the exact one seen in the image. Only one is available. It is a fair trade product from South Africa, where the Zulu people have a long and rich history of highly skilled basket weaving.
