Tonga Garlic Baskets
Please join the wait list for this variant.
These organically shaped baskets are woven from ilala palm outside the city of Bulawayo, Zimbabwe. The Tonga women pass down their traditional weaving techniques, utilizing the abundant plant life that continues to sustain their families. Like the gourds that inspire their forms, no two baskets are alike and can vary from the shape as photographed.
These will ship separately from our Atlanta warehouse and will not ship with other Bloomist items.
Materials: Local Milulu grasses, natural dyes
The baskets are measured using a soft tape measure like a seamstress would use. The tape is run from the center of the base of the basket, around the curve of the bowl, then up the neck. The measurement is NOT a straight LxWxH.
Measured from the bottom center up the side to the edge of opening at the top.
