Blonde Patterned Binga/Tonga Basket Large
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 brown and natural colored, and are lightweight with a sturdy rim.
The natural blonde neutral color is enhanced with beautiful geometric designs. In order to get these beautiful intricate designs, tree bark dye is used.
Binga/Tonga baskets are an exciting way to bring traditional African crafts into your contemporary home! Hung in clusters as wall art, they are spectacular.
Great on a tabletop too.
