Originating from the Batonga tribe in Zimbabwe, this basket is more than a piece of art – it's a cultural legacy. Handwoven with precision and care, its intricate patterns tell a story of tradition and skill. Purposeful and versatile, the Large Batonga Winnowing Basket serves as a stunning decorative accent or a functional piece for your home. Traditionally used for winnowing grains, its large size makes it perfect for storing blankets, towels, or displaying a collection of dried florals. Embrace the heritage and functionality woven into every strand of this beautiful basket.

Binga Baskets are handwoven using a simple over and under weave.  Prior to weaving, some of the palm fronds are organically dyed using plant based substances to create the darker colours. Each Binga Basket pattern is unique with no two ever the same. Each one is a work of art by the artisan who creates it. Designs will be selected at random.

Country of origin ~ Zambia / Zimbabwe, Africa.

Materials ~ Ilala palm 

Each piece has been intricately created by hand. If there are small flaws it is a sign and proof of human touch, making each and every piece unique with tiny little differences.
