Traditional Binga Patterned Basket / Natural - Brown / XXS
These intricate, patterned baskets are handwoven in the Binga district of Zimbabwe using natural, locally harvested materials and traditional techniques.
Binga baskets look amazing hung on the wall as a collection. Or can be used as a storage basket.
Traditionally these baskets have been used for wind winnowing, an ancient agricultural method for separating grain. Wind winnowing involves throwing the harvest into the air so that the wind blows away the lighter husks and hulls, while the heavier grains are caught in the basket.
NOTE: Each basket is unique and may not be the same as the ones featured in the photo. Please contact the store for images if you require them.
