Handmade Telephone Wire Bowls


South Africa’s Zulu people are famous for their sturdy and beautiful baskets and bowls.

Telephone wire basket weaving is an indigenous South African craft that has evolved from the superb basket weaving skills of the Zulus. The use of telephone wire as a medium was first started by night-watchmen who, to pass the boredom of the long nights, took to weaving the scraps of telephone wire they found lying around.

These stunning telephone wire bowls come in a myriad of palettes.
