Fair Trade Bulawayo Garlic Gourd
RRP incl. GST | Trade price excl. GST
The Fair Trade Bulawayo Garlic Gourd is made from handwoven Ilala palm.
We are proud to be distributing these African Fair Trade Gourd Baskets. All baskets are woven in an ancient traditional manner by Ndebele women.
The weaving tradition is carried through generations when women gather under a tree to discuss the issues of the day and to share and solve problems. Children play nearby and try their hand at weaving.
Ndebele women are often the breadwinner of their extended family. In rural Africa, basket weaving is done in between other household chores. The money received for basket-weaving means a cash income which results in greater independence and empowerment for the Ndebele women.
The baskets are hand-crafted, no templates or moulds are used, each basket is therefore unique. The hand-made element is evident and is celebrated. Please be aware that irregularities and creative inputs are encouraged and no two baskets are alike.

Every Uniqwa piece has a story…
Our range is largely individually, hand-made pieces. As the majority of our products are made from natural materials, elements such as texture, colour and pattern may vary piece to piece.
Reclaimed timbers, naturally weathered materials and off-cuts otherwise discarded are frequently part of Uniqwa design features. Over time, natural splitting, cracking and loss of natural oils may occur and form part of the characteristics and beauty of Uniqwa products. These are not viewed as imperfections or faults, rather part of the natural life and beauty of timber.
We believe the use of natural materials and hand-crafted elements result in a testament to the unique qualities found in materials originating from nature.
As every monitor displays different colour tones, the colour of pictures on our website and social media cannot be taken as a true colour indication of the actual products. Some product's tones may appear to vary from catalogue or website images.
