A few months ago I featured a beautifully woven palm dish handcrafted by the Tavie Co-operative in Niger, click here to read. Currently retailing on Mbare, the full African basket dish range incorporates unique details such as silver Touareg discs placed in the centre; as seen in the Coucher De Soleil and Rayon De Soleil styles; whilst other designs feature indigo thread in intense hues, creating a striking contrast against the natural colour of the leaves. One of the dishes that incorporates the indigo thread is the stylish Points Du Jour, whose design sees the thread scattered around at seemingly random points. The placement of the thread however, serves to reveal how long the artist took to complete the dish, as at the end of each weaving day the artist would weave a bit of thread as a marker indicating where they left off. The dish is finished of with the insertion of the Tavie Co-operative’s signature silver metal tube of authentication.
