About Ilala Weavers: Situated at Hluhluwe within the province of KwaZulu Natal, South Africa, the organisation was established some 30 years ago. They have a clear vision and objective of revitalising and enhancing the age-old Zulu tradition of handcrafts, which were in danger of being lost forever.
Today, Ilala Weavers help over 2000 Zulu men and women attain self sufficiency by working from their homes and retaining their lifestyle and rich heritage of basket weaving and bead work. This skill has been passed down through the generations by Zulu crafters. Each basket is completely unique, and an artisan may spend up to six months weaving a single piece!
