Zulu Basket

This intricate blanket has been inspired by the traditional craft of Zulu basket weaving, which has been handed down from generation to generation. Woven from the dyed leaves of the ilala palm, the decorative woven baskets are made for special occasions, such as weddings, the birth of a child, or a good harvest. Each basket is woven by hand and it can take up to one month to produce a medium size basket. The geometric designs also carry deep symbolism; for instance, if the triangle’s tip is pointing up it means that the woman is unmarried. Married women place two triangles together in the form of a diamond, representing fertility. Every basket is a unique piece of art. Carrying a rich heritage, this high quality blanket signifies craftsmanship and proud cultural tradition, beautifully woven together to bring you an authentic connection to your own African Story.
