Makenge Wedding Basket Black and Peach Accents
In rural Zambia near Victoria Falls, a wedding basket is a Toka woman’s most useful and valuable possession. Meticulously harvesting the tough roots of the Makenge bush, boiling until soft, coloring the roots with natural plant dyes—many steps must occur before weaving begins. Only the most skilled Toka craftswomen are able to weave these baskets. Each weaver adds one-of-a-kind patterns conveying messages of beauty, marriage and family.
Each basket is unique, featuring the natural tone of the roots with designs woven in black and/or natural rust colors.
Measures approximately 16-17"diameter x 2" depth
