Swazi Sisal

These highly collectible African baskets are handmade in Swaziland from fine sisal fibers, which are wrapped and then stitched over tiny bundles of grass.

Africa | Basket made by Mumcy Gamedze, in the Northern Hhohho region of Swaziland | Swazi baskets are made from sisal, which is an invasive weed, as such it is ideal for craft production since harvesting does not threaten the country's natural biodiversity. In making sisal baskets, tableware and jewelry, every step is carried out by hand since machine-prepared sisal yields inferior results.
