The Lozi ( Barotse) live on and about the floodplain of the upper Zambezi. For the Lozi people basketmaking is their foremost outlet for artistic expression. Makenge tree roots are gathered from the makenge bush, boiled until soft & then woven into baskets.
Lozi baskets are traditionally woven in two colours, black and natural fibre, normally with different areas utilising differing arrangements of patterns, including zig-zags, geometric shapes and animals.
Beautiful baskets with a modern twist.
