The Makers

Tonga Basket Weavers

Tonga Basket Weavers

Across the Southern Province of Zambia, Tonga women gather in small groups every day to weave baskets. It is believed that their unique weaving skills are inherited from the Ancestors who crafted baskets for gathering and serving food.

Today, these baskets are still widely used in rural Zambian homes and skills are passed from mother to daughter. Made from abundant natural materials like palm leaves and wild twigs, their baskets have a distinctive design with a flat square base.

Between the songs and stories, they joke about their work and how each basket has its own personality and no two ever turn out exactly the same.
