Tonga Basket Tray


Sourced in Zimbabwe 

These baskets are traditionally used to make maize. Although they are all from the same tribe, separation of the groups over the years has led to a slight differentiation in design. The Zimbabwe type is characterized by its flatness, whereas the Zambian version is deeper with a broader square “foot”. It takes one artisan up to two weeks to make one basket that's approximately 35cm in diameter.
