Traditional Tonga basket. With an elaborate pattern.

Handcrafted from Ilala palm trees, these Tonga baskets were traditionally used as grain storage bins. Millet and corn are stored in these conical-shaped containers for the long winter after harvest, the grains are then beaten into the traditional fine flour.
