These baskets are named after the remote Binga district in Zimbabwe, home to the baTonga people. Each basket is made from all natural and locally harvested materials such as wild grasses, small vines, roots, and palm leaves dyed in tree bark. Binga baskets are a style of weaving that can take around 3 days to complete and finished with a coiled rim with the distinctive herringbone pattern.
