The remote Binga district is home to the severely disadvantaged BaTonga people. In the early 1960's, their fertile lands were permanently buried in water during construction of one of the largest man-made lakes in the world, Lake Kariba, and they were forced to relocate to a marshy area that is difficult to farm. Today, the weavers still follow traditional weaving methods, using wild grasses and palm leaves dyed with treee bark to create beautiful baskets.
Handwoven in Zimbabwe.
