Winnowing baskets are handwoven, with antique-like patina, these low-profile baskets adorn walls and tables with equal grace and beauty.   

The Kuba are an agrarian people from the Democratic Republic of the Congo, who traditionally used winnowing trays to separate the light chaff from heavy grain during harvest. Tossing the grain into the air, the inedible chaff is blown away and the grain is caught by the tray and kept to eat. Sold individually.

SIZE: ~26.5" diameter
