Small Natural Binga Calabash Basket

Storage Baskets

Small natural Binga Calabash basket made from palm leaves in Zimbabwe

£50

Product Description

This unusual shaped basket works great as a storage vessel or vase for dried stems like pampas grass/eucalyptus, a beautifully versatile decoration for the home.

In the Binga District of northern Zimbabwe, skilled BaTonga women craft these iconic baskets from locally harvested palm leaves and wild twigs. Shaped like calabash gourds, each basket has a one-of-a-kind shape. The BaTonga people once farmed fertile land that was flooded by the damming of Lake Karibu, so weavers displaced across the lake demonstrate similar yet clearly distinctive styles.
