Imbenge baskets

Traditional imbenge are shallow baskets woven from grasses, as well as palm and banana leaves, that are used in many rural Zulu homes to cover clay beer pots during social functions. The photographs taken by Jonathan Katzenellenbogen are of imbenge woven from telephone wire in the Msinga district of KwaZulu-Natal in South Africa in the late 1980's and early 1990's. For more traditional baskets browse the Vukani Museum collection. Please do specific keyword searches to find other images of African baskets on this site.
