From Gone Rural's Song of the weaver collection, the Bonakele Block Weave Basket has been woven using Lutindzi Grass and Sisal. The contrasting block woven trim adds a wonderful contrast to the solid smoke body. Perfect for your basket wall or side table.

The Song of the weaver Collection depicts the lives of three women weavers of the Lavumisa region of Eswatini.

Bonakele is the first-born daughter of Siphiwe. Like her, she left school at 16, when she became pregnant. She was depressed about this, but her daughter gave her joy. She learnt to weave from her mother and joined Gone Rural to support her child.

Bonakele has a good relationship with her husband, but he does not have permanent employment. There are many ups and downs in their life. She wishes for more orders of woven vases so she could work more herself. This is her prayer for the future.
