Binga Baskets - Green Varieties
This collection of Binga baskets have been woven with coloured recycled plastic in tones to compliment our Mishran collection. These work fantastically well arranged architecturally on a wall and look equally stylish collectively on a table filled with fruit or decorative objet.
The Binga basket bodies are woven by the Tonga people in Northern Zimbabwe from palm leaves, dried grasses and small vines dyed with roots and bark. These baskets are still used for their traditional purpose of winnowing grain and a single basket can take days to complete.
Our new collection of baskets is handmade in Zimbabwe and uses recycled materials with natural sustainable resources as part of income generating projects through the Lynde Francis Trust, a non profit making organisation working with those living with HIV.
