Mbizi Handle Basket
The Mbizi collection is inspired by our love of Africa, in all her richness - her landscape, wildlife, people, cultures and languages. This is mixed (mélange is the French word for mix) with inspiration from our contemporary urban context and modern materials. Mbizi is the Shona word for Zebra. The forms and colours of our designs are inspired by these animals, social in nature. The materials and colours are further inspired by modern man-made technologies, such as concrete structures and polypropylene.
