Tonga baskets are superior quality, hand-woven baskets that are sourced from Africa. Our Tonga Baskets are made in the Binga district of Northern Zimbabwe from all-natural dyes and locally harvested materials such as ilala palm. 

The baskets come in a range of intricately made patterns and boast a flat base to keep them stable. Each basket is designed by the Tonga women who are known for their excellent basket weaving skills. Locals use them to carry their farm produce and to winnow the grain.

They have been used around the world to add luxury and earthy ethnic touches to interiors.
