time-honored tradition, new brides in the north of Zambia receive a beautiful yet practical gift: a makenge root wedding basket. They have been used for winnow maize and decoration on the wall. Baskets can be passed down in the family for over 50 years! They are woven from the roots of the Makenge bush.

*each basket or bowl is unique in pattern. They are used so there are signs of age and imperfection
