These beautiful gourd baskets are hand-woven by the Ndebele artisans in Bulawayo. Their organic shape is reminiscent of garlic bulbs, showcasing an ancient craft of weaving. They are traditionally used to collect and store grains.

Shapes, colour and weaves vary slightly, making each basket unique and special. Style these gorgeous baskets together in varying heights or use them as standalone accents - either way, they'll add an element of sophistication to any space.
