Ilala Tub Woven Palm Baskets
These Ilala Tub baskets incorporates functional storage and natural woven texture into your homel for plants, throws, cushions, kids toys, spare towels in the bathroom, logs by the fire.
Ilala palm is indigenous to Zimbabwe and grown in dry and sandy areas. They are non-invasive, plentiful and readily available. The fibrous leaves, once dried, are naturally cream in colour. The leaves can be stripped and sliced to either create a fine or thick fibre depending on the style of the basket they are producing.
The Ndebele artisans who make these baskets are traditionally farmers who have been basket-weaving for many years - learning traditional skills handed down from their grandparents. They would use their baskets in their villages to collect and store grain. This is now paired with contemporary designs via our suppliers, who support the weavers throughout their production process - allowing them to create beautiful designs that can be sold around the world and helps to generate their income from a global marketplace.
