I often tell customers that Bolga baskets are the work horses among the African baskets we carry, while Zulu baskets are the show horses. Bolga baskets are affordable and versatile, lending themselves to grocery shopping, garden harvesting, picnic duty, toy storage, and a host of other tasks. If you purchase a Zulu basket like the one shown here, you are buying a collectible, heirloom quality work of art. Zulu baskets are higher priced than most African baskets, reflecting the many days of painstaking work it takes to create even a small one. We love each African basket we carry, from the most humble Bolga basket to the most glorious Zulu basket.
