Zulu Basket Nkosi BLACK
An African Zulu handcrafted pot that is crafted from Ilala Palm. The Zulu grass pot is often water tight as it was used to carry liquids. Zulu Baskets are also made from boiling roots, leaves, berries, bark, or other organic material of indigenous flora. A main technique used by weavers is to dry the strips of bark in order to achieve a waxy texture and layer for a more smooth feeling and easier weaving. The patterns on the Zulu grass pot symbolize different things.
No two Zulu Baskets are very the same – they are all unique works of art.
