Our Gallery Grade Baskets are our highest quality baskets. They are one off, unique pieces of art. They are made to order and have a 4-6 week lead time. The basket photographed is an example of the pattern and colours, your piece will have it's own unique flair.
Tintsaba baskets are recognised as world class, transcending the traditional craft into gallery art.
Using a fine coiling technique, the baskets are woven from sisal, a fibre made from the agave plant which originated in, Mexico, and introduced to Africa to make the sisal fibre.
Before the sisal is ready for weaving it must be stripped, cleaned, and spun by hand. Weaving is a labour intensive task; it can up to 50 hours to spin the fine yarn and complete the weaving of this basket.
Each basket is a unique work of art and comes with a card signed by the artisan.
