  • Artfully elevating single-use plastic bags that would otherwise be discarded, Batonga women in Zambia add colorful triangle motifs to their baskets made from locally harvested palm leaves and wild twigs. Baskets will be similar to the photos shown, but there will be some variation due to the handmade nature of this item.

    Measures 20-21"D x 4"T.


  • Famous for their basket weaving skills as well as their geometric designs, the Batonga women in the Pemba and Monze districts of Zambia's Southern Plateau create these baskets by first weaving palm leaves into a characteristic square to begin and then radiating outward to create dramatic patterns.
