Tonga Basket Weavers
Across the Southern Province of Zambia, Tonga women gather in small groups every day to weave baskets. It is believed that their unique weaving skills are inherited from the Ancestors who crafted baskets for gathering and serving food.
Today, these baskets are still widely used in rural Zambian homes and skills are passed from mother to daughter. Made from abundant natural materials like palm leaves and wild twigs, their baskets have a distinctive design with a flat square base.
Between the songs and stories, they joke about their work and how each basket has its own personality and no two ever turn out exactly the same.

Imagine my excitement when I found another piece that could shine out in the open, our towels! So excited for these multifunctional beauties to be a centerpiece of our bathroom.
Everything brought into our home is very intentional, which is why I was SO excited to find Not Boring Home and their ethical, beautiful products!
The design and colors in this hand-woven basket are gorgeous. It gives our guest bedroom that pop of color we have been looking for. Thank you, Not Boring Home!
I received my very first order from not boring today. I ordered a small Rwandan basket to hang on my wall. The basket is beautiful! I am so happy with the quality that I just ordered another large basket. Thank you!
These are so cool. I bought three. One for me at work, one for me at home, and one for my grandson. It's the perfect size for your phone or your iPad. The wood is gorgeous and satiny smooth. There are these nice openings for your cords to pass through so they can charge while in use or sitting on the stand. I love, love mine.
