It can take upwards of 1 month to make a medium sized Ukhamba basket. Each basket telling a story using traditional Zulu patters.
Made in the heart of Zululand, Southern Africa. These baskets are collectible works of art.
Each basket comes with a tag including a description of the designs used as well as the name of the weaver. A true collector’s item!
