Details

Bright colors, leather-wrapped handles, and a boat-shaped design lend this elephant grass basket its distinctly African flair. Roomy construction provides easy access to farmers market produce or everyday storage. Size, shape, and color vary due to handmade nature. Approx dimensions: 19 1/2"h x 13 1/2"w x 9"d.

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!

Bought as a wedding present
Sep 30, 2021  |  By Christi Sutphin
This basket looks just like the picture -- beautiful colors. I bought it as a wedding present and filled it with "alternative products," such as laundry soap that comes in sheets in a small folder (instead of a plastic bottle or cardboard box). I wanted something unusual and fair trade, and this basket fit the bill. (FedEx threw the package onto our porch in a very battered box, but fortunately, the basket was unharmed.)

This basket is larger than expected and true to the photos about its colorfulness. Well-made and not a burdensome weight on its own. Holds a ton!

I just love the African basket products. Have purchased others in the past. The design, colors and craftmanship is just excellent. If I had room in my house, I would buy them all. Overall I am very pleased with my purchase.

All baskets arrived before the expected delivery date and were well packaged to prevent any damage to the products. All baskets are gifts for my friends in the USA and will be given as Christmas holiday gifts. Thank you for offering fair-trade products, at a reasonable price for all families to enjoy.

The multi-boat basket is the 3rd or 4th of these I have purchased, some for me, some as gifts. Everyone loves them, especially on trips to the farmers markets.

Beautiful and Practical Bag
Nov 28, 2018  |  By Maria P Peterson
This bag is beautiful. Large, but not bulky because of its flexibility. The grip handles are comfortable and large enough to hang over stroller handles. I will take it with me every time I head into the City, because it holds a lot of stuff.

Nifty Christmas gift..

Looks great to me. My niece marked it in my catalog and with your discount, I couldn't help but buy it for Christmas.

Simply gorgeous and with ample space!

I am thoroughly pleased with my boat basket. The name fits it perfectly for size as my living room needed something to store my large afghan during the summer months. Simply gorgeous way to hide my bulky afghan within site. Knowing this basket had a loving hand made touch also makes it so special! Thank You!

I love natural items and this basket is wonderful ... colorful and beautifully created. I haven't decided when I'll use it for shopping but right now I've filled it with throws to be used in the living room area. Everyone should have one for it will make you happy.

I bought a basket like this a few months ago. It is incredibly well-constructed, really sturdy, and easy to tote around for various purposes. I've traveled with it, shopped with it, and stored stuff in it. I love this basket!

This bag type basket is just what I wanted and it is beautiful! I wish it had been stuffed with something to maintain the shape during shipping but it did come with instruction on how to fix it . Vibrant colors and nicely made!
