Handmade in Swaziland
Handmade in Swaziland, these unique and bold decorative accents support female artisans and are bold additions to any room. Swazi baskets are the most labor intensive of all the African baskets, taking between 30-80 hours to make each piece. The time and skill it takes to make our one-of-a-kind decorative accessories makes each vase, urn, planter and basket a true work of art.
