Mountains meet lake, and on the soft, sandy banks of Zimbabwe lies a simple village called Binga, where women spend their days sitting side by side, quietly weaving palm leaves and reeds into baskets. In Batonga culture, the skill of basket weaving is taught as a rite of passage. When they’re not in school, young girls sit alongside the village elders, learning the craft that has been passed down in this way for generations.
