The evolution of basket weaving on the continent of Africa has been influenced by landscape and by lifestyle amongst agro-pastoralists, hunter gatherers, and subsistence farmers. The tradition of handcrafted production connects culture, nature, and survival, and the woven basket is a perfect example of this coalescence. The product is in effect an historical ‘document’ embodying cultural identity and cultural survival, in effect a sustainable economic good. Learning to make baskets across Africa is an education by osmosis. Mothers and grandmothers pass the knowledge on to their daughters and granddaughters through the years.The range and style of these natural fibre containers across the continent is breathtaking: from the Sahel in the west to the coastal plains of the east, and from the bushveld of the south to the highlands of Ethiopia - the humble basket embodies the very spirit of Africa and its people.
