Zulu nut bowls - Oops bowls

Size: 13cm (D) - image above

Known locally in South African as Oops bowls which is the Zulu translation.Zulu nut basket

An African Zulu grass woven basket that is known by the Zulu people as OOPS baskets or nut baskets. The nut baskets are small grass basket that are used for holding nuts, sweets or crisps and are generally crafted by the young Zulu Children from the age of about 5 years so that they keep learning the tradition of Zulu basket weaving. The Zulu nut grass baskets are 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 nut baskets 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.

A true collectors item. All sizes listed are approximate.

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