These baskets are handcrafted by talented women in rural Zambia using carefully harvested Makenge tree roots and natural plant dyes. The beauty and durability of Zambian wedding baskets is no accident. Meticulously harvesting the roots of the Makenge bush is truly an art form of its own, and once roots are found, they are boiled until soft and colored with natural plant dyes. Only the most skilled craftswomen are able to weave these baskets, and each adds one-of-a-kind patterns conveying messages of beauty, marriage and family. 16-17"D x 2"T
