Zulu Imbenge Wire Basket - Ntombi
Our Zulu Imbenge Wire Basket - Ntombi is incredibly hand-made from salvaged telephone wire scraps! It is truly amazing to behold up close once you see the intricacy that the wire is woven. In the Ntombi ("Lady" in Zulu) cream, rich dark brown and the warm copper of the stripped wire create a striking zig-zagging spiral. This is a truly one of a kind art piece.
In a unique blend of traditional technique and modern materials the Zulu Imbenge Wire Basket from South Africa tells a wonderful story. By ensuring fair wages and sustainable income talented artisans can keep a craft passed on for generations alive while finding new and exciting sustainable resources to use.
