This beautiful handmade Binga basket is a traditional grain winnowing basket from Zimbabwe. It is shallow and round with a natural and brown pattern. This lightweight basket is approximately 8.5" in diameter by 1.5" deep, and displays well on a wall or in a plate stand. Binga baskets are sometimes called Tonga baskets, after the BaTonga people who weave them. They are made from vines and Ilala palm fiber.
