This is a bright and colorful Red and Purple woven basket from the Lesotho People of South Africa.The types of traditional craft still most commonly seen in Lesotho are those made of grass. With an abundance of diverse grasses in the mountain highlands, artisans are rarely without raw materials. Basotho women, throughout the country, display great talent in weaving baskets.These basket bowls are constructed of sturdy local grasses wrapped with cotton twine. The grass has a natural shiny surface and grows wild in Maseru district where the weavers live. The cotton twine leaves the grass coils exposed and reveals the construction of the basket.

Enormous storage baskets used to be woven to keep various beans and grains, while smaller, more decorative baskets were created for collecting fruits and vegetables and for winnowing grains. l and plastic items. Most baskets made now are created for a limited number of upper class Basotho and tourists. This was collected in the field and shows age. This bright and useful basket would be wonderful in your home or to give as a gift.
