Artisan Story

Basket Weavers
Southern Province, Zambia

Across the Southern Province of Zambia, Tonga women gather in small groups every day to weave baskets. It is believed that their unique weaving skills are inherited from the Ancestors who crafted baskets for gathering and serving food. Today, these baskets are still widely used in rural Zambian homes and skills are passed from mother to daughter. Made from abundant natural materials like palm leaves and wild twigs, their baskets have a distinctive design with a flat square base.

We first visited these master craftswomen during Zambia’s hottest season when temperatures soar past 100 degrees. We joined them under the shade of a thatched grass roof and watched as they transform dried leaves and twigs into living art. Between the songs and stories, they joke about their work and how each basket has its own personality and no two ever turn out exactly the same.

We know a lot about baskets. Its our heritage and our tradition.
