Makenge root baskets in the rural Zambia were perfect wedding gifts and often they were passed down from generations to generations. They were made by the Mbunda people with special care for their environment; only small roots of the makenge bush/Makishi plant were gathered to leave the plant intact. After maize has been ground, it is tossed on these baskets and any rough pieces/husks etc. are then removed. They are painted light blue by the African artists. Comes with matching stand.
