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. To update their classic designs with beautiful color, weavers dye the palm leaves with textile dye before weaving. Subtly variegated tones give each basket even greater eye appeal.
