African Basket - Munyumbwe Decorative Bowl -  8.5 Inches Across - #62535
African Basket - Munyumbwe Decorative Bowl - 8.5 Inches Across - #62535
Approximately 8.5" Across x 3" Tall

Earthy and rustic, this African basket has two walls, resulting in a horizontal, light-colored design on the outside and a vertical, dark-colored, geometric design on the inside of the bowl.
  • You will receive the exact basket pictured above.
  • This Tonga basket is named for where it is woven, the Munyumbwe area of Zambia. The baTonga people in Zambia are closely related to those in Zimbabwe. In fact, both countries were once part of Rhodesia.
  • There are three primary types of Tonga baskets: Plateau, Munyumbwe, and Sinazeze. All are similar in materials, but differ in construction due to varying geographic based weaving styles.
  • Tonga baskets are woven on radials of 'creepers' (vines), and palm leaves are sometimes dyed with bark and roots to make up the designs.
  • Munyumbwe baskets are a heavy, double-thick weave that takes extra time and effort to create. The back is coiled and looped together, then front is woven over that in a style similar to plateau baskets. The end result is a thick-walled, sturdy, shallow bowl with a unique type of pattern.
