To make her famous baskets, the artist first gathers grass and ilala palm. Then leaves, roots and berries are collected to create natural dyes before weaving the materials into baskets. Once fully washed and dried the palm is cut into pieces before it is woven to adorn the baskets in traditional colours and patterns. All the designs and patterns that she creates around the baskets are symbolic, either incorporating scenes from her rural environment or geometric designs typical of Zulu beadwork.
Whether using the diamond shape to refer to femininity or triangles to signify masculinity, this timeless and intricate piece, created with simple palm and grass is a testimony to how the simplest things can indeed take the form of being the most beautiful.
These baskets display a specialized craft which can be applied to your very own designs.
