Makenge African Basket
Hand-woven from the roots of the African makenge bush, these baskets are made by highly-skilled Zambian women who pass down the craft from mother to daughter. The colors and patterns represent universal themes of marriage, beauty and family and are traditionally given as wedding gifts that become treasured family heirlooms. One basket takes up to two months to create. With unique colors, patterns and sizes, no two baskets are alike.
