An African Zulu grass woven open bowl that is known by the Zulu people as Iqoma baskets. Zulu Iqoma Open BowlsThe Iqoma is a bowl-like basket with deeper and inward curving sides used for carrying grain. Many have a concave base, which comfortably sits upon the head The Zulu Igoma grass bowl is often water tight and all the colors are natural, obtained by boiling roots,leaves,berries and bark of indigenous flora. The patterns on the Zulu grass Igoma open bowls symbolize different things. Triangle for Masculine. Diamond for Feminine. Double triangle forming hour glass shape for married man. Double diamond for Married woman and many other patterns represent the Zulu tribe.

Every Zulu basket is made by hand, using indigenous materials and the type of baskets vary from area to area,depending on the availability of raw materials and the use to which the basket is to be put. It can take more than 1 month to make a medium size basket that will be unique in size, pattern,shape, weave an color.

The African hand woven Zulu grass basket you purchase and receive may differ just slightly in size, look, and/or color from the African hand woven Zulu grass basket shown in the picture because each African hand woven Zulu grass basket is handcrafted by individual artists.
