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!

Classic Grasslands basket,
May 28, 2024  |  By Nancy Blignaut
It came quickly. We wet it, stuffed lightly damp cloth in and around it. Put it in cardboard box it arrived in and dried it in basement.
It was lovely when taken out of box and my daughter was delighted!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am disappointed. The basket I ordered arrived squished in a box. The shape of the basket is now ruined. I have followed the instructions to reshape the basket and it is still not in a nicely round smooth shape. The customer should not have to fix the item they paid for. The colors and design is beautiful but now I have a basket that is odd shaped and I'm not happy.
Owner Response: Our apologies, we strive to be upfront with this information. Our partners ship their baskets folded to save costs on shipping. We will contact you directly to resolve this.

Well made basket. Not large but perfect for knitting, etc. The green/blue color incorporated into the design matches my living room chairs perfectly. I love this item.

This is my seventh basket from SERRV.

All are well made, some more tightly woven than others. All re shaped well but some required more attention than others. This one required very little shaping. Still have my eye one one more. All are in use while also being decorative. Baskets are well described and very close to those in photos. Large enough for mail and magazines. A bit wider and shallower than photo but more suitable for my usage. Also can accommodate my knitting.

Lovely, vibrant colors

This basket is going to my soon to be 8 year old granddaughter for her Birthday. She is redoing the room in turquoise. It will be perfect. I was glad that instructions and others reviews said to wet. Stuck under shower for a few seconds reshaped it's perfect!

Perfect Size and Beautiful Basket

The basket is better looking in person than in the photo. Though I purchased this basket for a knitting project I may use it for something else. Well made and love it.

Lovely basket, but not shaped correctly
Nov 12, 2019  |  By Pam Leinauer
This is a lovely basket. However, it is not round and I'm not sure what to do about it. It is a gift and I really can't give it unless I can get it to the right rounded shape. Help!
Owner Response: We've emailed you with our recommendation on how to reshape it - dampening it in the shower works well! The material is strong and the weave is excellent quality so manipulating the shape while damp will not damage it in any way.

Amazing Basket

Very pleased with the size and quality workmanship of this basket, it was packed very well and popped into shape easily. I will order more baskets from Serrv.

Love this Basket!

I just love this basket. It was set inside a larger basket so it was perfect when I got it. Did not have to reshape it at all. It was larger then I thought. But, love the colors and the workmanship. Beautiful job the artist did on the basket!

Round Ghana Basket

When I received the basket, it was all bent up and out of shape. I tried everything I knew to get it back in shape. No Luck!! I am really disappointed that it is not usable.
Owner Response: Our baskets from Ghana ship to us stacked tightly in order to save considerable shipping expense. Wetting them should help with reshaping, but our customer care team will contact you to resolve your concern. We want you to be happy with your experience with Serrv!

A beautiful basket squashed!
Oct 28, 2016  |  By Deborah Reed
I sent for this basket in turquoise and the colors are beautiful but it is really squashed.I called to return it immediately and the woman I spoke to said to put something in it to straighten it out.For 44 dollars I didn't expect that advice.I guess they are shipped from Ghana crushed. I would not recommend this basket to anyone.
Owner Response: Thank you for bringing this to our attention! Please call Customer Care if you want to return this basket. Our apologies!
