Tintsaba baskets are woven by women and the techniques passed down from mother to daughter. Baskets were, and still are used as containers to transport or store objects or food, much like the plastic containers we all use today. They were, and still are, also used to hold gifts at various ceremonies such as weddings.
These baskets are made of sisal, which is actually a weed in Zambia. The intricate work and design takes patience and is very refined, which adds to the beauty that is shown here.
Tintsaba designs are inspired by nature.
