#Zulu weaver Nomkhosi Nkosi lives in the farmlands of Zululand, South Africa. She regularly sends #BasketsOfAfrica her beautiful Ukhamba baskets with traditional patterns and geometric designs. Many of her baskets feature asymmetrical designs, so the patterns are different on every side. Her creations are warm and elegant and beautiful.
