Xhosa Gourd Basket

Ships April 15th

  • These artistic baskets are crafted and harvested of river reed, called imisi in Xhosa, which is used for both the weft and the warp of the weaving. Some of these baskets have a wire armature which, during their creation develop bumps and bends along the way which the weavers do not straighten, thereby giving the finished product its organic shape.  Patterns vary and are unique to each basket.

    Baskets will darken slightly and become more firm with age.

    Each piece is one-of-a-kind and possesses its own unique personality. Variations between items received and images shown can occur.

  • 23-25" H
    Sizes may not be approximate, each piece is measured based on the volumetric height, from the base to the center of the opening. Some of these artisan pieces are therefore leaner, while others have a wider and more bulbous appearance.
