This spacious round basket is the perfect size for your shopping! It can be also used as a storage basket in the home or it makes a perfect gift basket for somebody who appreciates sustainability and handwork. Bolga baskets are one of the most known products of Ghana. They are traditionally and ethically handwoven by a cooperative of male and female artisans in the remote region of Bolgatanga.
Each basket undergoes several production steps and it can take a few days to be completed. Baskets are eco-friendly as sundried elephant grass is used for weaving. To add colors to baskets, weavers use plants and non-toxic fabric dyes.
5% of every purchase of a Bolga basket is donated to the iHelp Africa's project that provides donations to girls in schools with sanitary pads. This allows schoolgirls to attend school even during menstruation, as they have enough sanitary pads available.
NOTE: Due to the handwoven nature of Bolga baskets, expect some variation in size, colors and shape.
Due to the size, we might ship your basket pressed inward. Easily reshape your basket by sprinkling warm water on the entire basket (or soaking it in water), straighten it with your hand to get back the original shape and allow your basket to dry well.
