We’re Big
On Baskets!

Our baskets are made from natural materials and woven by weavers in rural communities from different regions in Zimbabwe.

Traditionally serving a functional purpose many are now viewed as pieces of art and décor items that perfectly complement any interior styling. All our baskets come in a range of sizes making it easier for you to choose a basket to suit your needs.

Laundry Baskets

Wash and weave solutions for your bathroom!

Transform your bathroom with an ecofriendly laundry basket woven by master craftsmen and designed for durability. We have Malawi cane laundry baskets that come in different sizes and have a darker colour finish. The Ilala laundry baskets on the other hand are a lovely cream colour and come in various styles and sizes.

Wall Baskets

Although primarily used decorative on walls, our handwoven shallow bowl baskets are multi-purpose.

Although also used to store bits and bobs like keys and sewing kits, they are most striking when used as wall motifs. We supply beautifully colored Masvingo sisal baskets in different colour schemes as well as Binga baskets in neutral and rich earthy tones. We also offer wall plates like the Ilala Tray and the porcupine wall piece which all come in small, medium and large.

Care for your Baskets

Follow these simple tips to keep your baskets in great shape for years.

Caring for baskets and other woven products:

  • Care should be taken not to expose baskets to full sunlight especially those that contain dyes as the sunlight will cause the colors to fade
  • Baskets should be kept away from damp places or where they can easily get wet. If a basket does happen to get wet it should be left to dry out immediately to prevent it from getting mouldy.
  • If you decide to use a basket as a planter we recommend that you line the basket with either plastic or metal sheeting to protect the basket.
