The African Art Story

In the heart of KwaZulu-Natal, the Zulu people of South Africa weave colorful and vibrant telephone wire baskets. The partnership with this region impacts 500 Zulu families. They buy the wire on credit, creating a sense of independence and accountability, then work from home at their own pace. Slowly, economic opportunities are transforming the community while preserving an artistic tradition. Most importantly, the telephone wire weavers gain the dignity of work and self-sufficiency with each basket they weave.
