Parurigo Wave Basket

With its exuberant form, the Parurigo Wave Basket is an unexpectedly modern result of traditional craft. The captivating basket takes inspiration from its namesake – the undulating swells of waves off the coast of Africa – and translates it into an expressive form that is rich in texture and cultural heritage. Crafted in Zimbabwe of locally harvested naturally dried wild grasses, the basket is made by skilled artisans who follow the time-honored crafts of their ancestors. By combining materials of different colors, an expressive geometric pattern emerges. This pattern accentuates the dramatic shape of the basket and emphasizes the technical intricacies of the craftsmanship. The basket is part of As’Art’€™s collection of sustainable craft-based objects made in developing countries that aims to raise the standard of living for local makers by providing them with a higher-than-average income, good working conditions, and the ability to continue the traditions of their culture. The result is a striking form that displays an acute sense of technical know-how. Transcending decorative styles, the Parurigo Wave Basket effortlessly integrates with different interior environments and adds a richness of texture and heritage that is attractive and intriguing.
