LAVUMISO DESERT: Dusky Pink, Sand and Brown
Meet the beautiful Desert Lavumiso baskets. With geometric patterns in dusky pink, natural sand and brown, with white accents, these woven baskets are an exquisite addition to any dining room or kitchen table. With other woven tableware available, these baskets make stunning fruit bowls and bread baskets
These wonderful multi-coloured woven baskets are hand woven from indigenous lutindzi grass in rural Eswatini. This wiry grass grows wild in the mountainous regions, and boasts a naturally waxy finish which makes it ideal for weaving into water and stain-resistant tableware.
A skilled craftswoman working within a weaving cooperative made your basket, in partnership with social enterprise Gone Rural Bomake. This organization now works with over 770 artisans across 53 communities spread over three regions of Eswatini: each group trained to specialise in a different craft that uses the unique natural materials available in their area. Since 1970, Gone Rural have been empowering women, supporting children and creating sustainable employment. You can meet the weavers from Eswatini here.

Really lovely, well crafted baskets in interesting colour palettes... these were bought as gifts but I’ve ended up keeping them for myself!
