This striking 18 inch basket comes from an area of Zambia renowned for its distinctive weaving style and skill. Palm leaves are dried in the sun and then colored with natural dyes to achieve a rich dark brown hue. Use this basket to decorate your walls or as an eye-catching tabletop centerpiece. Each basket is slightly unique and takes days to make.
Please note that there may be slight variations in size and design.
This basket is sourced from a fair trade women run company whose mission is to create a sustainable niche for artisans in Tunisia, Morocco, Burundi, Zambia and India and to ensure their craft supports the health, education, and economic stability of their families. "We believe that conscious consumerism — in which the act of buying is also one of giving — is a powerful way to affect change."
