Binga Basket - Tengeneza

£45.00

Binga baskets 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.

This is our first collection of Binga baskets and each one is completely unique. These work fantastically well arranged architecturally on a wall and look equally stylish collectively on a table filled with fruit or decorative objet.
