Weaved Telephone Baskets

Weaved baskets are pretty nice.  The all natural ones are very burnable, something these all plastic ones lack. (Which is either good or bad depending on you’re view)  They are called Zulu Telephone Wire Baskets and made in South Africa.  For the most part, they are made from the wire from downed telephone poles.  Injured workers from the mines and oil fields of South Africa are taught how to weave them.

It’s pretty neat stuff, with some pretty insane designs that must take ages to master.  They start weaving it from the top, and end at the bottom center.

Turning the mess of plastic wires into a beautiful work of art you can buy and 75% of the money goes straight to the one who weaved it.
