This fair trade telephone wire basket was made by the Zulu people of South Africa.  Handwoven from the rim down from plastic coated electrical and telephone wires, it is a spectacular example of functional art.  If you order this African basket you will receive the exact one seen in the image.  Because it is unique, only one is available.  It is approximately 2 1/2" deep by 6 1/2" in diameter, with spiral pattern in shades of blue, green, brown, silver and copper. It is suitable for display or for daily use, and can be hand washed as needed.

About the brand: African Creative was founded in 2004 in Cape Town, South Africa by a local musician seeking to link local artisans to global markets. The business is based on fair trade principles, artistic collaboration, and entrepreneurial empowerment. It specializes in high quality bead and wire art. In 2013 African Creative launched The Locked Horn Project to raise funds to combat rhinoceros poaching, and it is a supporter of SANCCOB, a South African non-profit organization that works to conserve marine life.
