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.

The Batonga are known for their fine weaving, a skill that has been passed on from mother to daughter for generations.
