Tonga Filigree Wall Basket - Small
African baskets bring beautiful artisan craftsmanship into our living spaces.
In the Binga District of northern Zimbabwe, skilled BaTonga women craft beautiful all-natural baskets from locally harvested palm leaves and wild twigs. A chic addition to the wall or tabletop, each basket showcases a subtle woven design. The BaTonga people once farmed fertile land that was flooded by the damming of Lake Karibu, so weavers displaced across the lake demonstrate similar yet clearly distinctive styles.
Swahili African Modern is a fair trade import, design and distribution company based in Eugene, Oregon. Founder Leslie Mittelberg lived in Kenya and fell in love with African artistry. Upon returning to the US in 1995, she founded her company and named it in honor of the people of East Africa whose artistry inspired her. Swahili now has a large network that includes individual markers, export agents, and micro-enterprises in nations all over Africa.
