African Basket - Swazi Lutindzi - 11-12 Inches Across - #69083
African Basket - Swazi Lutindzi - 11-12 Inches Across - #69083

Approximately 11-12" Across x 4-5" Deep

The colors of Africa come alive in these grass baskets handwoven in Swaziland. Lutindzi grass is a sedge and grows in tufts only in the cracks of rocks. Each blade grows in a sheath and pulls out easily when harvested so it does not damage the roots of the grass - which quickly regenerates and sends out more shoots. This strong grass has been used in Swaziland for hundreds of years to make ropes for tying down roofing thatch.

High up in the mountains of Swaziland, over 700 women support themselves by weaving these baskets. The weaving techniques are passed on from mother to daughter, preserving cultural integrity in this proud nation that is ruled by the last true king on earth.

You will receive the exact beautiful basket pictured above.
