This striking 18 inch basket comes from an area of Zambia renowned for its distinctive weaving style and skill. Each of these hand-crafted baskets take days to make and showcase the distinctive weaving style of Zambia's Batonga women. This 18 inch piece is made from sun-dried palm leaves that are carefully boiled in natural dye. Mix and match with the rest of our collection for a striking wall basket display or use as a centerpiece on your table or countertop. 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."
