Originally used for winnowing maize in rural areas, this collection of baskets will add a beautiful and functional handmade piece to your home. These baskets are a classic Tonga style made in the remote Binga district in Zimbabwe, home of the Balonga people and the Businiwa Community. They are the master weavers of these amazingly beautiful baskets.

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.
