Makenge Basket | No.26 | Zambia


Makenge baskets are hand-woven from boiled roots of the Makenge bush and naturally coloured with plant dyes. The baskets are extremely hard wearing as the roots allow for higher coil to be woven.

As part of our vintage collection, this basket has been designed with unique, soulful details and carefully restored with stunning artisanal techniques using traditional methods. The basket would have been passed down generations as a wedding gift to women and used in an outdoor kitchen. The basket conveys messages of beauty, marriage and family. 

We love these vintage baskets as each one is a one-of-a-kind piece and individual to the home they end up in. The natural hues makes them ideal for any home and the baskets have taken on a rich patina and developed beautiful textures from years of use.

Style as a statement decorative 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.
