The craft of basketry in southern africa
 This article was written by E. M. Shaw of the South African Museum in Cape Town.
Jackie Abrams
 Jackie Abrams is a contemporary basketry and fiber artist who counts Africa among her strong influences: "The fabrics, the colors, the cultures, the earth, and the people continue to impact the vessels I create."
Angeline Masuku, basketmaker
 "The big, bold woven baskets with their contemporary shapes and strong, quirky designs are a world removed from the conventional shapes and designs of traditional Zulu basket weaving. Yet Angeline is a rural Zulu woman who was born and still lives near Hlabisa, a deep-rural town in the heart of KwaZulu-Natal’s traditional Zululand area. Her weaving techniques and the materials she uses are also strongly rooted in the ancient Zulu art of basket weaving, which she first learnt as a child."
