Clean your imbenge telephone wire basket by washing it in cool, soapy water. Keep out of dishwashers and away from sun and heat.
The wire remnants are purchased by Deirdre Moser, the coordinator who has been working with the Wire Weavers, a group of mostly women weavers, who have lived in the rural area of KZN (KwaZuluNatal) South Africa since 1989. Moser markets the baskets to stores in South Africa and throughout the world. This is the main source of income for about 120 people.
The Zulu people believe that imbenge lend dignity to a home. Sets of imbenge and beer pots are traditionally given by a bride to her in-laws during her marriage ceremony.
