Choma Tonga Basket
Palm leaves, wild twigs and creeping vines make this distinctive Tonga basket a truly unique home accent. Each basket takes days to make and uses palm leaves carefully boiled in natural dye and dried in the sun. These are traditionally used as fruit baskets but also look great in our favorite wall basket displays. Please note that there may be slight variations in size and design.
