Description

This lovely natural Binga Basket was donated by Baskets of Africa. Traditionally used as a winnowing basket, Binga baskets are popular for decorating a wall and look amazing. They are light and easy to hang, and they have neutral colors and beautiful geometric designs. These types of baskets are created from naturally dyed palm leaves. Tonga culture baskets are woven on radials of ‘creepers’ (vines), and palm leaves are sometimes dyed with bark and roots to make up the designs.

This basket measures approximately 20” across x 2” deep

About Baskets of Africa:

Baskets of Africa was founded in 2002. Cael Chappell, currently a WARP board member, started working in African Art and Crafts in 1991 and fell in love with the incredible artistry and creativity of African basket weavers. This led to the creation of Baskets of Africa in order to focus attention on these amazing weavers and their work. He has been dedicated to the principles of Fair Trade throughout his career in Africa, so when he started Baskets of Africa, joining the Fair Trade Federation in 2003 was a natural fit.
