About the Artisans:

Bridget Meyer

We're proud to source these beautiful baskets from Bridget Meyer, each handcrafted by the women of Bridget's village in Zambia using tough makenge roots. In rural Zambia near Victoria Falls, a wedding basket is a Toka woman’s most useful and valuable possession. In everyday life she may choose to use it practically—to winnow grain, to collect and store harvested roots and rice—or to beautify her home by hanging it on a wall. The beauty and durability of Zambian wedding baskets is no accident. Meticulously harvesting the roots of the Makenge bush is truly an art form of its own, and once roots are found, they are boiled until soft and colored with natural plant dyes. Only the most skilled Toka craftswomen are able to weave these baskets, and each adds one-of-a-kind patterns conveying messages of beauty, marriage and family.

Tanzanian woman artisan, weaving Maila baskets

Vikapu Bomba embodies the vision of Catherine Shembilu to create sustainable income for talented, rural Tanzanian women. For many women living in the lush southern highlands, life centers around subsistence farming, cooking, cleaning, and caring for children. Women can weave baskets between their other duties, working daily to earn money to pay school fees, buy food, procure farming supplies and contribute to savings. When a woman has money of her own to use or share, she has greater influence over her life and future.

Milulu grass reeds can be harvested carefully from the marsh without removing the entire plant. The reeds are dried in the sun, dyed with natural dyes, and split for weaving. The closeness to the earth of both maker and product gives these beautifully crafted baskets natural appeal.
