This range of African 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 intricately patterned baskets from dried palm leaves and dyed with tree bark. These Binga baskets (also known as Tonga baskets) were traditionally used for winnowing grains.
The Binga Baskets are quite rare and difficult to find due to the remoteness of the baTonga people and each handwoven basket can take up to 5 days to complete. This basket in particular, uses a double weave technique that takes an even greater intricate level of skill to master. The double weave range are very rare and truly pieces of exclusive art that you can hang proudly in your home.
These African wall baskets range in size, in the double weave range we currently have 5 sizes available: 35cm, 40cm, 45cm, 50cm and 55cm. An assortment of sizes creates an impressive decorative look on the wall.
