Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout.
Description

This round wall basket with light orange design was woven by a member of the Zambian Lozi Tribe from indigenous Mkenge tree roots. These wall hanging baskets are known across Africa as ‘winnowing baskets’ and are still widely used in weavers’ homes for decoration, for carrying grains and foodstuffs and for general home storage.  


Basket weaving offers 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.  This 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.

 

Material: Mkenge Tree Roots
