Binga Wall Baskets - Natural
- Unit Price
Our range of African Binga baskets (also known as Tonga baskets) come from the remote Binga district in Zimbabwe – home to the baTonga people.
Using weaving techniques passed through generations, the women of Tonga create the subtle intricately patterned baskets from dried ilala palm leaves. Traditionally these were used for winnowing grains but are now also planted by the women for the purpose of basket making. Each individual design is one of a kind, equally celebrated & acts as a brand stamp of the individual artisan and their craft.
It takes approximately two weeks to complete a basket about 35 cm in diameter.
Both stylish and functional these traditional baskets can be used in a variety of ways. We love to hang them in groups of varying sizes hung at staggered heights to create a custom wall feature. They also make a gorgeous fruit basket, a piece for tabletop styling or placed behind decor to add further depth, dimension & height.

As with all products of this nature, measurements, subtle patterns and shades will slightly vary. If you have any specific requirements or preferences please leave them in the notes at checkout. If you intend on hanging a group we recommend purchasing all at once so we can best select your combination & avoid any variations between later shipments.
To hang simply use the wire loop provided on the back of each basket. For a more secure flat mount, place a small pin between the weave in the base of the basket & push directly into the wall. This will achieve a nice flush finish against the centre.
