Handwoven Batonga Addmo Basket with Black Stripes

Swahili Modern

ZAB3A

  • In the Pemba and Monze districts of Zambia's Southern Plateau, skilled Batonga women craft iconic baskets from locally harvested palm leaves and wild twigs. These deep baskets make lovely all-natural tabletop storage for fruit and vegetables. 

    Measures 15-16"D x 6"T. Due to the handmade nature of this item, size and color may vary slightly. 


  • 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.
