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!

Bolga Baskets are the Best
Jun 3, 2024  |  By Beekeeper59
Absolutely LOVE the bolga baskets. I have many of the large size--they can carry a load & withstand lots of abuse. You can spray them off with your hose ( & also reshape them this way.) If you use them till the grass frays, you can easily fix with superglue. They are great storage hung from a ceiling hook. Don't leave them in your car 24/7 or colors will fade in sun, but they will still hold a heavy load! A perfect gift, even for yourself.

Love these baskets

This is my second basket. I got it to use in the garden for vegetables or fruit. I have no trouble "getting it back in shape". I just use a spray bottle, though. I don't dunk it I just spray it damp.

I love my basket. I waited for nearly a year for this to come back in stock. It was worth the wait. The colors are beautiful and the quality excellent. I couldn't be happier.
