Our Batonga Winnowing Basket is a living testament to the symbiosis of craft and culture. Woven by the Tonga people of Zambia and Zimbabwe, this basket carries the legacy of grain collection and winnowing. The artistry unfolds in the simple over-and-under weave, with palm fronds dyed organically to create distinct dark tones. Each basket, a unique work of art, is a bridge between tradition and daily life, providing both functionality and a touch of cultural elegance.
