Meet the beautiful natural, white rim bread basket. With a smoky woven organic shape, this basket is 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 natural woven baskets are hand woven from indigenous lutindzi grass in rural Swaziland. 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 Swazi 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 Swaziland: 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 Swaziland here.
