Description

Bring a pop of natural textures and tones to the table with this oblong woven table mat, woven from local rush in Zambia. This one-off piece was crafted by a member of Lozi Tribe under the guidance of an environmental NGO which has been active for nearly thirty years.


Weaving brings men and women the chance to earn a reliable second income, to supplement agricultural work – growing crops, fishing, rearing livestock and poultry – which can be unsustainable through the dry seasons.  The group has a craft centre where weavers can travel to work from and board at, if they wish, since some of the weavers live many miles from the hub.
