Hausa Basket - Nigeria
These vintage Nigerian cowrie shell and leather basket bowls are handmade by the Hausa people of Northern Nigeria. Each bowl carries a rich history, as cowrie shells were once a valued form of currency, symbolizing wealth and prosperity. Now, they adorn these exquisite baskets in a decorative display of art, design and tradition. Showcase them as a conversation-starting focal point, or incorporate them into your decor to infuse your space with a some African charm.
