In the rural area of Zambia, near Victoria Falls, wedding baskets are the most useful and valuable possession of a woman. In everyday life, they use them both in a practical way, to separate the grain and collect, or store harvested roots and rice, as to embellish their homes by hanging them on a wall.
The beauty and durability of the Zambia wedding baskets are not casual. Harvesting the roots of the Makenge bush is truly an art form in itself, and once the roots are, boil until they are soft and color them with natural vegetable dyes. Only more skilled artisans can weave these baskets, and each add unique patterns that transmit messages from beauty, marriage and family.
All products are handmade with a lot of love and with 100% natural and ecological materials. They can vary slightly in size, shape and color, but they are 100% original and unique!
