Handwoven in Zimbabwe

These medium wall baskets are made in the remote Binga district of Northern Zimbabwe - home to the displaced Tonga people. Today, many Tonga women utilize traditional weaving techniques to create intricately patterned baskets. Tonga baskets are woven using the over and under style of ‘simple’ weaving and a 16 inch diameter basket can take around 2 weeks to complete.

For more than 20 years, the ethical brand Mbare (pronounced “im-bah-ree”) has worked with artisans all across Africa to create stunning baskets and glassware. Mbare’s gorgeous baskets use natural and recycled materials and are handwoven with traditional weaving techniques that have been passed down from generation to generation. Mbare’s glassware is made from 100% recycled glass that is melted down and reshaped into incredible drinkware. Mbare pays living wages to all its artisan partners, financially supports more than 2,000 artisans, and adheres to fair trade practices. The majority of Mbare’s artisan partners are fair trade certified.
