Ilala Fruit Basket


This fruit basket was made in the heart of Zululand in KwaZulu-Natal.  Made from Ilala palm.

 Ilala is a local plant that is found in abundance in some parts of Southern Africa.  It's softness is determined by the region where it is grown,  due to atmospheric temperatures KwaZulu-Natal has the hardest Ilala grass.  The grass comes in a natural colour.  In order to get a colour like black the basket weaver boils the grass and adds a fabric dye to stain it.

 Size: 40cm Diameter, 8cm Depth

Care Instructions: Clean with a damp cloth
