Product Description

  • Depth: Approximately 2 1/4"
  • Length & Width: Approximately 6 1/2"
  • Color and Pattern: Rainbow Spiral
  • Country of Origin: South Africa

This square Zulu telephone wire basket combines traditional Zulu basket weaving skills with modern materials. Achieving the incredibly tight weave requires great hand and forearm strength, so these baskets are more often woven by men than women. This basket combines rainbow colored plastic coated wires with bare copper wire in a spiral pattern. It is approximately 2 1/4 inches deep and 6 1/2 inches square, with rigid walls and rounded corners. We think it's a great size and shape for storing tea bags or stashing keys and a smart phone on your kitchen counter. This beautiful basket is a product of the Zulu people from South Africa. Use warm, soapy water to clean.
