This two toned planter 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.
