Traditionally Binga Baskets have been used to collect and winnow grain by the Tonga people (also called Batonga people) of Zambia and Zimbabwe. The villagers continue to use these pieces throughout their daily lives, but also gain incredible financial contributions to their communities.

Handwoven with precision and care, its intricate patterns tell a story of tradition and skill. Purposeful and versatile, the Medium Batonga Winnowing Basket serves as a stunning decorative accent or a functional piece for your home. Traditionally used for winnowing grains, its size makes it perfect for storing blankets, towels, or displaying a collection of dried florals. 

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.

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.
