  • Considered to be collector's items, these baskets are woven from the tough fiber of the makenge root, gifted to a new bride by her mother or in-laws, and passed down from generation to generation. The basket's design is created by the repairs of years of use.

    The baskets can be up to 50 years old. The baskets' age increases their value and guarantees more character, including raised grass designs.

    Measures 17"-19" D. Please note that the baskets will show signs of wear.
