This stunning set holder hails from the largest African Tribe (the Zulu). The Zulu have long been known for unmatched skill and artistry in weaving baskets from native grasses. Urban Zulu, faced with little access to natural materials, are now fashioning the same baskets from recycled telephone wire. So they have smartly fused together the past and the future - weaving baskets as they have for centuries, out of brightly colored telephone wires of today!
These bright, washable and sturdy baskets, or mbenge, have been created in a mesmerizing, intricate design in the splendid colors of the earth: black orange and red by skilled artisans who learned their craft from generations before them.
The clip holder will make a striking statement in any room - particularly an office, art room or studio. It measures approximately 3-1/4 inches in diameter at the top and is just about 1-1/2 inch high. The pencil cup measures 3-1/2 inches in diameter at the top and is not quite 3-3/4 inches high.
Wash in warm, soapy water. As these are woven, please don't expect it to hold liquids. These are not dishwasher safe. We recommend that you not use this for unwrapped food.
If purchased separately, these pieces would be priced much higher.
