Product description

Bring the serenity of organic forms and natural fibres into your home with our Dancing Basket handwoven from palm leaf in rural Zambia.

Variations

Each one unique, the undulant lines of these fair trade African baskets are said to reflect the good and happy times in a village or homestead. These woven baskets are a true work of art, bringing a gentle sense of organic texture and careful craft to whichever space they inhabit.

When the Kariba Dam - a manmade dam on the borders of Zambia and Zimbabwe – was built in the 1970’s. many people were displaced in the process. The government and other parties sought to empower these displaced people by equipping them with the skills and tools to earn a living from traditional crafts such as basket weaving, blacksmithing and woodwork. The groups who create these beautiful dancing baskets are supported by such organisations, ensuring that they have the materials and the training to produce these baskets as well as ensuring that fair prices are paid and ethical working conditions observed.

The weavers who produce these dancing baskets tend to weave in groups, meeting outdoors regularly to weave in the shade. Income made from basket weaving is typically invested in family farming enterprises (the other mainstay of these communities along with traditional crafts) and to support the family and pay children’s school fees.
