Half garlic gourd basket

Regular price €109

Half garlic gourd basket

In love with this unique shape & contemporary organic look! Made from palm trees, these baskets were originally used to store grain and were hand-woven.

Just as the "whole" Garlic Gourd, the half basket is also unique in its design.

All baskets are made from hand-woven Ilala palm in the traditional way by Ndebele women in Zimbabwe. The weaving tradition continues for generations when women gather under a tree to discuss current issues and share problems. Children play nearby and try their hand at weaving.

Ndebele women are often the breadwinners of their extended families. The money received for basket weaving means cash income that gives Ndebele women more independence and personal responsibility.

The baskets are handmade, no stencils or molds are used, so each basket is unique. No two baskets are alike!
