Description

This round wall basket with an understated orange rim was woven by a member of the Zambian Lozi Tribe, working for a NGO project which begun nearly thirty years ago. These wall hanging baskets are made from Mkenge tree roots and are still widely used in weavers’ homes for decoration, for carrying grains and foodstuffs and for general home storage.  


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.

 

Material: Mkenge Tree Roots


Dimensions: 30cm Dia

Please note, as this is a handmade product, dimensions & colour may vary from those shown in the photographs.
