Woven Baskets

These beautiful hand woven baskets are made by village women from Binga, a rural district near the Victoria Falls. They are creatively woven from dried and dyed ilala palm leaves. The palm plantations here sustain over 30 000 ilala palms. Measures are in effect to ensure that the manufacture of these baskets does not deplete Binga's existing fauna. This BBC Africa slideshow provides further insights into this traditional industry.
