These beautiful handmade Binga baskets are a traditional fair trade product from Zimbabwe. The Binga baskets (also called Tonga baskets) are made from a variety of natural and locally harvested materials, using palm leaves from the Ilala palm as a base, and are dyed with tree bark. To make such a basket is a labour-intensive process. To produce an average basket takes about two weeks.
You can hang the Binga baskets easily on the wall with a small nail that you fix through the weaving pattern in the wall. This way, the baskets hang neatly against the wall and the nail disappears into the weaving pattern.
