Tonga Wall Baskets
Tonga baskets are handwoven from ilala palm. Ilala palm is hand-dyed using natural dyes. Each basket takes several days to complete due to its extremely complex designs.
Tonga baskets are beautifully hung on the wall, and/or used as a basket for fruits, jewelry, hand towels, etc.
Tonga baskets are created by the baTonga people of Zimbabwe. The rural Binga district in Zimbabwe is one of Zimbabwe's best-known basket weaving communities, and also home to the displaced baTonga people. Purchasing a wall platter basket supports the baTonga community, enabling many women to send their children to school for the first time.
