All over Africa African Baskets and Basketry play an essential role in everyday life. Countless varieties are found and the methods of weaving and the materials chosen usually reflect the availability of the raw materials in the weavers' area as well as longstanding cultural practices and tradition. Common materials used to make African baskets include sisal, palm leaves, cane, wire, and tree bark.
Our African basketry has been carefully chosen to offer baskets that are both functional and beautiful. The featured baskets are authentic examples of baskets that are in use today in everyday African life. This ensures our baskets, if properly cared for, will give many years of service.
