Shallow Telephone Wire Bowl-Earth

Price:
$38.00
Details:

Telephone wire basket weaving is an indigenous South African craft. It has evolved from the extraordinary basket weaving skills of the Zulu people. The use of telephone wire as a medium was first started by night-watchmen who, to allay the boredom of the long nights, took to weaving the scraps of telephone wire they found lying around. Originally the telephone wire was scrap, but there is now such a demand for these stunning baskets that the basket weavers now buy their wire.

Telephone Wire Baskets Sth African

This project was established in the subsistence farming area of KwaZulu-Natal province in South Africa . Bundles of telephone wire are prepared for the weavers to take home. The artisans take as many bundles as they wish and use it to weave a basket. No two baskets will be identical as each artisan draws on their own creative base to produce unique designs and patterns. Once completed, the finished baskets are then returned, and the artisans are paid per basket.
