Nomadic Beaded Baskets
Palm leaf basket weaving was until only recently a dying craft, but you become part of its renaissance when you purchase one of these intricate African baskets. Woven by the Samburu and Rendille people of Ngurunit, elements of both tribal styles mingle beautifully: a tight and traditional woven technique with delicate beaded embellishment. Originally produced for collecting camels’ milk, today these doum palm baskets make for versatile and beautiful home accessories. Use yours as a pretty planter or flower pot, as a desk tidy, fruit basket or storage basket for trinkets and jewellery.
