Description

A trio of open weave baskets crafted from Mkenge tree roots in Zambia, with a natural-coloured rim crafted from rolled and twisted roots. These decorative pieces will bring a soothing dose of rustic texture and organic tones to any corner of the home – and there’s only one set available, so snap them up now!


These bird nest bowls are woven by men and women of the Lozi Tribe in rural Zambia, under the guidance of an environmental NGO which has been active for nearly thirty years. 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. 


Weaving offers men and women the chance to earn a reliable second income, to supplement agricultural livelihoods which are often unpredictable. In this region of Zambia it is typical for families to earn their income through growing crops like rice, maize and vegetables, or through through fishing, livestock and poultry.
