Zulu Ilala Palm Baskets
    $19.00
African Basket - Zulu Ilala Palm - Lidded Herb Canister -  5.75 Inches Tall - #78788
African Basket - Zulu Ilala Palm - Lidded Herb Canister - 5.75 Inches Tall - #78788

Approximately 5.75" Tall x 4" Wide

This type of looser weave basket has been used by the Zulu people of South Africa for hundreds of years to store herbs and spices.
  • This is an unusual wide-mouthed, straight sided shape that works great for storing things in your home or office. These canisters also look wonderful in a collection of other shapes of Ukhambas.
  • Weaving is usually done as a family or community activity after the work is done in the fields. The tradition is usually passed from mother to daughter or grandmother to granddaughter.
  • These baskets are all-natural. The dyes are made from materials as diverse as flower petals and mud. Some colors are very rare due to difficulty in obtaining enough of the dying materials, other colors are only available certain times of year when specific flowers bloom or other conditions are satisfied to grow and harvest the materials used in the creation of the dyes.
  • Collection of these baskets in Zululand, South Africa is challenging to say the least. Hundreds of miles are driven on dirt roads to go village to village and hut to hut collecting baskets from each individual weaver.
