This multi-colored bowl with a unique pattern was crafted in Africa using telephone wire. The art of hand weaving these basketry objects is an emblematic craft of the Zulu community in South Africa.
With its design that is both modern and ethnic, this home decor item will be the perfect accessory for an eclectic interior decoration, placed on a table, or used as a container in a bathroom or kitchen.
You can pair it with other telephone wire wares, such as plates, trays, and bowls, in coordinated color combinations. Whether the interior style of your home is traditional, ethnic, or contemporary, these African art objects will create a chic and ethnic wall decoration in your home, above a sofa or bed.
The South African handicraft made from telephone wire is a remarkable example of adapting ancestral craftsmanship to contemporary materials. Blending tradition and modernity, this ethnic art craft enhances the creativity of Zulu artisans in South Africa who produce interior decoration objects with infinite color shades and timeless style.
This project significantly contributes to the settlement of South African artisans by providing additional income to their agricultural activities. The material used, namely telephone wire, is new. Contrary to a common misconception, it is not recycled material.
The color combinations are exclusive to AS’ART. We regularly create new designs (shapes, colors, patterns) to offer you new interior decoration objects.
To maintain your telephone wire bowl, you can, if necessary, rinse it under slightly soapy water. Be sure to dry it thoroughly.
