Binga baskets, also commonly called Tonga baskets are traditional baskets handmade by the Batonga people in the Binga district of Zimbabwe. Hence the name Binga.

Most are characterized by a round, flat shape that display easily on walls, although sometimes they are shaped like a bowl or vase. These are natural colored, and are lightweight with a sturdy rim. 

They are created from all natural and locally harvested materials such as palm leaves.

Binga/Tonga baskets are an exciting way to bring traditional African crafts into your contemporary home! They look fabulous grouped in clusters as wall art or stand alone in the perfect spot. A tiny nail is all you need!

If you wish we can add cowrie shells in a design for some extra pizzaz!

They look as beautiful table top.

Approximate Measurements: 17"-19" ø
