Open Vintage Bayei & Hambukushu Grass Basket - Mountain

The basket is an intergral part of the African culture. These vintage baskets are made with fibre of the "vegetable ivory" palm tree, called Mokola. Baskets are a common sight in rural communities, but have expanded due to the diversity of weaving techniques, designs and the use of colour. These vintage baskets make some of the finest of art forms found in the world.
Each basket takes about eight to ten weeks to complete, working every day.
