Sometimes you see a Zulu basket and you know you love it.
It is also the only one of its kind in the world.

The Zulus are the largest tribe in Southern Africa, renowned for their artistry and craftsmanship.

"The telephone wire basket is a relatively recent craft development which reflects the ingenuity of craftspeople. Brightly coloured telephone wires are used to great creative effect, decoratively covering objects such as bottles and walking sticks, or made into plates and baskets."
(Todres, 1998 Guide to South African Arts, Culture and Heritage).

Worldesigns is in the process of helping co-ops of South African telephone wire weavers to become financially independent. We hope that their unique art form will appeal to you and that we can continue to sell their artwork. Our long term goal is to provide access to education for their children.

Telephone baskets are very popular and this quality is hard to find. Each one is unique. They are solidly made and heavy. This basket is made of recycled telephone wire and has vivid colors. It has a lovely shape. Marvel at the talent used to make this true work of usable art. Wash with warm soapy water! A very pretty bowl-shaped basket! It is also wonderfully crafted. Compare the quality and even technique of our telephone wire bowls to others. Extraordinary!
