Zulu weaving paterns

Its amazing what the Zulu women can do with grass and coloured thread.  It takes them from several days up to a couple of weeks to produce the bigger baskets and items in the photograph above while one of the plate like baskets (at a loss for a better word for it) will sell for only between R100 and R200 (South African Rand).  An absolute bargain and must have memento of the area.


  1. They are beautiful, I am sorry I did not buy more when I lived there. Diane

  2. They are very pretty - I can never resist buying them !
