17" Zim Vintage Basket - Red

We love the gorgeous mix of texture, pattern, and artistry. Perfect as an eclectic wall accent for a living room or a bold statement in the foyer. 

They look great mounted on a wall, propped up on a shelf, or even sitting on a table. A loop on the back of the basket helps with hanging.

 

Traditionally used as a winnowing basket, Binga baskets are popular for decorating a wall. They are light and easy to hang, and they have neutral colors beautiful geometric designs. They are created from naturally dyed palm leaves.

Approximately 12" Across x 1" Tall

  • You will receive the exact basket pictured above.
  • This Tonga basket is named for where it is woven, the Binga district of Zimbabwe. 
  • In the early 1960's, the fertile lands of the baTonga people were permanently buried in water during construction of one of the largest man-made lakes in the world, Lake Kariba, and the people who lived there were forced to relocate to the Binga district.
NOTE: Each piece is unique therefore the design my vary because they're handmade but size will remain as indicated.
