The Story of the Buhera Basket (Fairtrade)
These stunning baskets are woven in the Buhera district, in central Zimbabwe, by the Hera people. The traditional, tribal art baskets are made from creeping vines or climbing plants. They are traditionally used by the locals for storing grain and other dried foods. These baskets look even more stunning with some tall, dried flowers or branches in them.
These Buhera baskets are fairtrade, eco friendly and handmade. The baskets have wonderful organic shapes. Because of its handmade nature, no two pieces are the same. This uniqueness makes them even more charming and great to combine with other baskets.
