This beautiful basket is named for the remote Binga district of Northern Zimbabwe. Tonga women utilize traditional weaving techniques to create intricately patterned baskets. Binga baskets are woven using the over and under style of ‘simple’ weaving. The baskets are finished using a coiled rim with a distinctive herringbone pattern.
The word kanju translates to “creativity born of struggle” or “making more with less.” Nothing could be truer of the exquisite pieces and talented artisans with whom kanju works across the African continent.
