From the side of the road...

This beautifully made grass mat was bought on the N2 between Pongola and St Lucia, KZN, the photo doesn't really do it justice, it looks much better in real life. The fresh smell of grass and the texture, the hand-dyed colours are really pleasing to the eye. There is a group of old women are always sitting by the side of road, making and selling them...along with fruits and wooden sculptures. They come in a variety of colours, shapes and sizes, this particular one was R350. They would look good in any room. I wish I had taken their number, if you are ever driving down there, make a stop, you wont regret it.
