Immerse yourself in the convergence of functionality and artisan mastery with our Batonga Winnowing Basket. Rooted in tradition, these baskets were originally crafted for grain collection and winnowing by the Tonga people. The simple yet intricate over-and-under weave technique results in a functional work of art. Palm fronds, organically dyed with plant-based substances, create distinct dark tones, making each basket a unique expression of the artisan's skill and cultural heritage. Designs will be selected at random.
