Kariba Basket

  • Handmade
  • Made in Zimbabwe
  • Dimensions: 12” H x 10” W
  • Material: Ilala Palm

Organic and sustainable, our Kariba Basket has been handcrafted by women from the Buhera group in Northern Zimbabwe. Woven from local ilala palm fibers, these beautiful vase-shaped baskets are traditionally used to store and carry grains in the African bush. One basket of this size can take around one week to complete, and it provides a sustainable source of income for the weavers’ families. Style yours on a shelf or table by itself, or fill it with lightweight dried stems for a natural look.

Each basket has been individually crafted by hand and no two are exactly alike. Design and shape may differ slightly from basket to basket. Variations in color, finish and size may occur. Basket delivered may not be the exact basket pictured.

Wipe clean. Do not wet. Dry completely. Avoid harsh cleaners or chemicals. Please handle with care.
