Makenge Basket | No.1 | Zambia
Makenge baskets are hand-woven from boiled roots of the Makenge bush and naturally coloured with plant dyes.
Traditionally, these baskets are given as wedding presents to new brides, to use in outdoor kitchens. They are extremely hard wearing as the roots from the Makenge bush allow for higher coils to be woven. Due to their longevity, the baskets are often passed down generations with other baskets taking on rich patina and textures from years of use. Each basket conveys messages of beauty, marriage and family.
We love the simple design of this basket. Our preferred way of styling is as a decorative statement piece anywhere in the home. The stand is not fixed and can be removed allowing for the basket to be styled as wall art or as a low catchall bowl.

Please note that all sizing is approximate and may vary slightly to dimensions given. The arms of the stand can be adjusted so that the basket can sit higher or lower to adapt for the space you wish to style in.
