A large storage basket hand woven in Swaziland from indigenous and renewable grasses. This basket is perfect for storing towels, throws, children’s toys, magazines or as plant holder. It is part of Gone Rural’s signature range, The Song of the Weaver, which is inspired by three generations of Gone Rural weavers. Bonakele, who the basket is named after, is the granddaughter of the family who like many Swazi women was taught to weave by her mother.
Gone Rural is a social enterprise founded in the 1970s, which works with over 750 artisans in 13 groups across Swaziland – from young women to gogos (grandmothers) and often with three generations of women from one family. Gone Rural provides its artisans with self-employed, home-based work, empowering them with a sustainable income, which allows them to fulfill their traditional duties and look after their families.
Please note that the design on each basket is slightly different.
