Zambia Baskets

Medium Plateau Winnowing Basket with Recycled Plastic

Swahili Modern

ZAB2B

  • Creatively utilizing single-use plastic bags that would otherwise be discarded, skilled Batonga women in the Pemba and Monze districts of Zambia's Southern Plateau add artistic graphic motifs to their baskets made from locally harvested palm leaves and wild twigs. These baskets elevate any wall display, or use them around the home and garden as well!

    18-21"D x 4"T. Baskets will be similar to the photos shown, but there will be some variation in size and patterning, due to the handmade and unique nature of this item.

  • 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.
