The simple, everyday sight of fruit on your kitchen counter can transform into beautiful home décor when you place it in one of our Moonbasket Nest Baskets. These handmade baskets from Africa are crocheted with hemp by rural craftswomen in Khayelitsha, Cape Town, South Africa.
Each piece is uniquely beautiful and while it stems from a traditional art, it lends an air of contemporary elegance to any space. Use these stylish baskets to hold fruit, place your ornaments, sprinkle flower petals in to adorn your washroom counter, or even to create wall art that becomes a conversation piece.
Looking for something more earthy? How about these delightful Vetiver Baskets & Hearts? Also from Africa, these handmade baskets are crafted using vetiver grass. The naturally fragrant grass has a woody scent that adds an air of organic freshness to your home. The vetiver hearts make great gifts too, especially if you’re shopping at holiday time for your loved ones.
We love to bring you special arts and crafts from around the world, but one of our all-time favorites is the Zenzulu Collection of handmade baskets from Africa. This exclusive collection carries baskets, handbags, lace platters, ornaments and cuffs woven by women in South Africa.
Their time-honored tradition of weaving grass baskets is put to great use as they skillfully create each exquisite basket in an array of stunning colors and beautiful shapes.
