Baby Nongo Gourds


These Nongo Gourds are smaller than your average - a delightful way to add an element of substance and inconsistency to your home decor. Handwoven in Ilala Palm they bring texture and fun to rooms throughout homes, hospitality and commercial venues.

Nongo Gourds are handwoven from ilala palm using a simple over and under weave.  Prior to weaving, some of the palm fronds are organically dyed using plant-based subtances to create the darker colours. Nongo Gourds traditionally finished with a dark brown herringbone edge trim.  Each Nongo Gourd pattern is unique, no two are ever the same.

Traditionally Nongo Gourds have been used to collect and store grain in the displaced Binga tribes in Zimbabwe.  The villagers continue to use these pieces throughout their daily lives, but also gain incredible support to their livelihoods and communities by the baskets they are able to sell into the global marketplace.
