Binga Wall Baskets
- 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 the generations, the women of Tonga create the subtle intricately patterned baskets from dried palm leaves, that were traditionally used for winnowing grains.
It takes approximately two weeks to complete a basket about 35 cm in diameter. The baskets are made from the ilala palm, which, although growing freely, is also planted by Tonga women for the purpose of basket making.
Both stylish and functional these traditional hand weaved baskets can be used in a variety of ways. We love to hang them in groups of varying sizes at staggered heights to create a custom wall feature. They also make a gorgeous piece for tabletop styling or placed behind decor to add further depth, dimension or height.
