This shallow Zulu telephone wire basket combines traditional Zulu basket weaving skills with modern materials. Achieving the incredibly tight weave requires great skill along with hand and forearm strength. This basket combines blue and green wires to form a striking swirl pattern. It is approximately 1 inch deep and 8 inches in diameter with rigid walls. This beautiful basket is a fair trade product from South Africa, and is equally striking hanging on a wall or sitting on a kitchen counter. Use warm, soapy water to clean.
