Vintage Zulu Wedding Baskets

Zulu Wedding Baskets are woven using ilala palm fronds naturally dyed with mud, flowers, charcoal, bark, roots and other natural materials. These iconic baskets are known worldwide for their intricate patterns which bear meaning in the context of a marriage. Traditionally, women weave baskets for their husbands to drink beer from on their wedding day and the waxy surface of the palm fibers is ideal and renders tightly woven baskets watertight.

Each of kanju’s Zulu Wedding Baskets is an authentic vintage piece. Please contact kanju to see a full range of available baskets.
