This striking 18 inch basket comes from an area of Zambia renowned for its distinctive weaving style and skill. Palm leaves are dried in the sun and then colored with natural dyes to achieve a rich dark brown hue. Use this basket to decorate your walls or as an eye-catching tabletop centerpiece. Each basket is slightly unique and takes days to make. Please note that there may be slight variations in size and design. The plant-based dyes used in this item may have a mild odor that will fade within a few days.
*For local purchase or pickup only. If shipping is desired, an additional charge will apply due to product size.
