These beautiful Tonga Pattern Platter Baskets with recycled berry red plastic are handcrafted by women artisans from the Tonga tribe living in Northern Zimbabwe’s Zambezi Valley.
We work directly with a group of 30 Tonga master craft women to bring you the finest Tonga baskets. These baskets are woven by hand from recycled plastic and Ilala palm fibers native to Zimbabwe. Tonga baskets are woven using the over and under style of simple weaving and a 17 inch diameter basket can take around 2 weeks to complete, which provides a sustainable source of income for their families.
Our Tonga baskets feature a versatile palette of recycled berry red and two variations of natural tan. This gorgeous mix of pattern and artistry make the Tonga baskets an eclectic wall accent for a living room or a bold statement in the foyer. These baskets definitely add beautiful texture and dimension to blank walls. Hang this functional art in multiples for a pop of textural.
Hanging hardware or display stand not included. Just wipe clean and please don’t wet basket.
