Walé Oyombé and Mpia, Basket Weaving

The Walé ritual imposes various taboos on the young mother, such as going to the fields or preparing and serving food, leaving her plenty of time to pamper herself and her child. The only authorized work is traditional basket weaving. Here, Walé Oyombé and Walé Mpia make all kinds of baskets, which they then hope to sell to other women in the village, providing them with their only source of income.
