Hi friends! It’s Betsy.
If you follow me on Betsy Moyer on Instagram, you might already know that I recently stumbled my way into a bevy of Vintage African Baskets as Wall Art for SHOP TEOT.
They have been hanging in the corner of our living room since, as seen in the photo above. They are bringing me so much joy. I hope we keep a good collection stocked so that I can leave these hanging in my own home for a while yet.
Today, I want to show you why I was out there on the hunt for the perfect vintage African Basket for wall art.
Here is a look at a few AMAZING and inspiring interiors featuring the handwoven baskets, braided and tied from the tall grasses of the river lands in Africa.
These absolute works of art make a lovely impact once hung on the wall. Pair a large 18″ round handwoven basket alongside its partner in 13″ for a 3 dimensional addition to your gallery wall, or hang one solo to make its own statement.
You could also maximize your art piece with a grouping of 6 or more! Look how many are grouped here. Amazing!
We sold a mini collection of the vintage african baskets as wall art, as well as a BOLGA market basket, to Heffe’s mom.
I’m THRILLED that she supported TEOT with her purchase, but I also love to know that she has these lovely works of art in her home. Thanks Vivian!
SHOP TEOT baskets are all handmade in Africa for Fair Wages.
The women of Zimbabwe have long taught the art of weaving palm leaves and reeds into the baskets as a rite of passage for the young girls. This craft has been passed down for generations on the sandy beach of Zimbabwe where the mountains meet the lake, in a simple village called Binga.
You can get that look above by shopping with TEOT. If you are INSANELY COOL you could cover up the entire wall of your home like that photo above. Just hit me up on the side because I’ll need to increase my inventory numbers for you dramatically!
