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.
