"we absolutely adore the binga baskets! each one feels so special, like a piece of handcrafted history you can hold onto. plus, every basket supports these incredible artisans who are keeping this beautiful tradition alive.

provenance

the binga basket is a unique and beautiful handwoven basket, traditionally crafted by the tonga people of rural bulawayo, zimbabwe. these baskets have a rich history, originally serving a practical purpose in village life.

binga baskets are meticulously made using a technique passed down through generations. the process begins with harvesting ilala palm leaves, a sustainable and locally sourced material. these leaves are then dyed with natural elements and woven by skilled artisans into various shapes and sizes. each basket boasts unique patterns and slight variations, reflecting the individual weaver's touch and artistry.

traditionally, binga baskets were used for winnowing grains, separating the chaff from the wheat. today, they've transcended their practical origins to become cherished decorative items. they represent the tonga people's cultural heritage and a symbol of their enduring skills and traditions.

by choosing a binga basket, you're not just bringing a piece of handcrafted beauty into your home. you're also supporting the livelihoods of these incredible artisans and helping to preserve this age-old tradition.
