Scattered on Kwazulu Natal undulating hills, there is a hive of industry where many women engage in the craft of basket making. They have transformed the traditional art form into a means of support and income 🛖

A medium-sized basket might take up to a month to make because each one is handmade and completely unique.

Ilala palm and ncebe are used to make baskets ( wild banana bark) and used in ceremonies, the ukhamba basket is customarily utilised.

Care Instructions
Use a lightly damp lint-free cloth with soapy water to clean. Wipe down with a fresh dry lint-free cloth until it is completely dry. Avoid using harsh chemicals or abrasive cleaners, as they can damage the woven fibres. For additional advice, please contact us.
