These baskets are woven by a small group of Xhosa women who weave traditional Xhosa baskets as well as contemporary items. The organic shape of this basket was inspired by a piece of artwork by a local ceramicist (Louise Gelderblom) The weavers work with "imisi" or Cyperus textilis, a river reed indigenous to the southern part of South Africa which grows in Table Bay Nature Reserve, and for which a permit is required to harvest in sustainable quantities. This basket is woven around a wire armature made by a local metalworker, which speaks to the sculptural nature of these baskets.
