Handcrafted Wall Baskets
Hand-crafted by Batonga women in rural Zambia, these baskets represents generations of artistic heritage passed from mother to daughter. Each piece takes days to make and is meticulously woven from abundant natural fibers like palm leaves, wild twigs and creeping vines.
Rich, earthy pigments are added with natural dyes made from bark and leaves. Use them as decorative storage or as stunning wall accents. Each piece is 100% hand-crafted and slight variations in size and design may occur. The plant-based dyes used in this item may have a mild odor that will fade within a few days.
- Available in 3 sizes: 10”, 12”, 13”
- Made in Zambia
About Creative Women
We are long-term partners with talented artisans in Ethiopia and Kenya who work in women-led small businesses. We've also recently expanded our fair trade partnerships in Tunisia, Morocco, Burundi, Zambia and India. By developing healthy, sustainable, and profitable partnerships, we are able to bring artisanal handcrafted pieces to a global market.
Our artisans create beautifully unique natural fiber hand-spun and hand woven textiles and baskets. Employing a longstanding and rich traditional art form, our artisans spin and weave 100% locally grown environmentally friendly high quality fibers. The pieces are then washed and accented with AZO free dyes or sustainably sourced leather. Handcrafted with skillful hands and careful attention, each piece has unique qualities in natural texture, softness, and color.
Creative Women is a fair trade certified company [Fair Trade Federation] committed to providing high quality jobs for our suppliers as well as unique products for our customers. By creating a sustainable niche for these artisans, Creative Women helps to ensure their craft supports the health, education, and economic stability of their families. We believe that conscious consumerism — in which the act of buying is also one of giving — is a powerful way to effect change.
