In the Pemba and Monze districts of Zambia's Southern Plateau, skilled Batonga women craft iconic baskets from locally harvested palm leaves and wild twigs. The weavers artfully elevate single-use plastic bags that would otherwise be discarded to add colorful assorted graphic motifs to their baskets.

⟡ Virtuous Handicrafts is an online retailer of carefully curated, fair trade products from around the world. This particular basket is imported by Swahili Imports, a wonderful group who partners directly with the people who created this basket. ⟡
