Makenge vintage


Makenge baskets are winnowing baskets. After maize has been ground it is tossed on these baskets, removing any rough pieces or husks. Makenge baskets are made from the root of the Makishi plant.

We stock vintage baskets (very rare), bowls and coloured baskets (white, black and grey). We put those on a stand to turn it into a beautiful interior piece.
