We recommend using a damp cloth to wipe clean. Do not submerge in water.

The story behind the baskets...
In rural Zambia near Victoria Falls, a wedding basket is a Toka woman’s most useful and valuable possession. In everyday life she may choose to use it practically to winnow grain and to collect and store harvested roots and rice, or to beautify her home by hanging it on a wall.
