Zambia Baskets

Handmade Baskets From AfricaWe are proud to offer a unique selection of rare, antique wedding baskets from Zambia. Procured from a private collector whose efforts span 30 years, these handmade baskets are in limited supply and difficult to find in the US. In a centuries old tradition, new brides in Zambia are given a handwoven basket made from the roots of the Makenge bush. Often the baskets are handed down to the bride by her mother or in-laws, and in future she will pass the basket to her own newly married daughter. In fact, the baskets are so durable that the same basket can be used in a single family for over 100 years.
