Zulu Baskets


We have some beautiful new Zulu baskets in house. Zulu beer baskets, like the beauty pictured here are among the best known African baskets. They were used in lieu of pottery for storing and transporting beer and other liquids by the Zulu, and are remarkably rigid and sturdy. Called Ukhamba in their native South Africa, they are commonly given as wedding gifts by the Zulu. We're proud to now include Zulu baskets in our selection of African baskets.
