Tonga or Binga baskets are traditional and famous woven baskets from the Tonga tribe in Zambia and Zimbabwe, known throughout the world for their basket weaving techniques and pattern making skill. Each basket we make is treated with equal care and creativity and takes about two weeks to complete.
A century old and traditional technique of craftsmanship, Antique Makenge Baskets were handmade by highly skilled women artisans using fibers of the makenge bush root. The root was boiled at high temperatures to soften the skin/fibers which was then dyed using natural plant ingredients to provide functional weaving fibers.
