10" Tonga Basket


$36.00


Hand-crafted by Batonga women in rural Zambia, this basket represents generations of artistic heritage passed from mother to daughter. Each piece takes days to make and is meticulously woven from abundant natural fibers like palm leaves, wild twigs and creeping vines. Rich, earthy pigments are added with natural dyes made from bark and leaves.

Due to the handmade nature of these baskets, slight variations in size and design may occur.
