Choma Museum and Crafts Centre Artisan Story
Zambia

One World Projects works with the Choma Museum and Crafts Centre Trust Ltd (CMCC), in Choma, in the center of the Southern Province of Zambia, Africa.

The crafts divisions of the CMCC are associated with about 450 crafts makers, primarily women (400) who are subsistence farmers who derive badly needed cash income from their crafts making. The CMCC seeks to promote Zambian crafts and culture by assisting in marketing, skill development and local organization of producers. The skill development is based on traditional techniques, materials, and design.

The tradition of handcrafting baskets has been a part of the Zambian culture for centuries and is passed down from generation to generation. These hand-dyed and crafted baskets are woven from dried palm leaves woven between and interlocking structure of twigs. 

Natural fibre basket making is a labor intensive and a highly skilled craft and these natural and eco-positive trays are multi-functional for either storage or serving. Traditionally these baskets were used to keep foodstuff or for winnowing purposes. You can use these baskets just for decoration, or as a decorative way to store and display food,toys, magazines -- just about anything.
