Ideal for storage, carriage, or colorful décor, each Bolga basket makes an extraordinary impact.

Reshaping Your Bolgatanga Basket: Our artisan partners fold this basket in order to ship more efficiently. To remove creases and restore its shape, dampen basket with a spray bottle or other water source, or by submerging in water for 1 minute. Let it rest for 5 minutes to allow grass to absorb the moisture and become pliable. Bend and press the basket into shape - don't worry, it won't break. Allow it to air dry before use and enjoy your beautiful handwoven basket from Ghana!

Nice but varies

Pretty basket in general. Shape and coloring vary a little. Mine is more upright/pear-shaped, and the middle is mallard teal instead of aqua. Seems high quality and sturdy and has a natural sweet grass aroma. I was well-warned to wet and reshape, and it worked well. I wasn't disappointed and I do recommend.

Beautiful

I love this basket. It holds all the junk that usually ends up covering the coffee table. I like that it is high so you don't see the junk. Beautifully made.

I am saving this basket for a friend's birthday. She showed interest in this one when she looked at my catalog so I know she'll love it. I have many Serrv baskets and each one is so beautiful and creatively crafted. I've given some for gifts and display many proudly in my home.
