Tonga Basket Vessel

These beautiful baskets are 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 and a 16 inch diameter basket can take around 2 weeks to complete. The baskets are finished using a coiled rim with a distinctive herringbone pattern.
