Baskets from South Africa

Design Junkie made a Fair trade agreement with a ethically sourced company based in South Africa who has built relationships with a number of communities.

The Zulu’s are the largest tribe in Southern Africa, renowned for their artistry and craftsmanship. Dotted on the rolling hills of KwaZulu-Natal, there exists a beehive of industry, where numerous women work at the art of basketry. They have taken the traditional art form and turned it into a way in which to supplement their incomes, and in many cases their only means of income.
