Large Blue & Green Handled Bolga Basket

Perfect for storage, carriage, or colorful decor, these Bolga baskets make an extraordinary impact. In one of the most impoverished areas of Ghana, women weavers are earning a sustainable income as they craft these distinctive elephant grass baskets using traditional techniques, patterns, and colors. Handles are leather wrapped. 9"h x 10"dia, handle: 16"l

In order to ship more efficiently, our artisan partners fold this basket for packing. To remove creases, slightly dampen the basket, reshape, and air dry.

Beautifully made basket
  |  By
My basket arrived completely squished in a small box, but I soaked it, reshaped it, and allowed it to dry. Looks fine now. Well made, nice leather-wrapped handle, quite sturdy.
» Response from Serrv: Thank you for reshaping it! Shipping our Ghanaian baskets this way (both overseas and domestically) saves us an incredible amount on freight, and we appreciate your understanding.

Collapsed when arrivaled
» Response from Serrv: We're sorry! Our bolga baskets are slightly flattened when they're shipped from Ghana. We do try to reshape them before sending to customers but you may need to reshape a little yourself. Just dip it in cold water for about a minute, then let it rest for 5 minutes. Once the grass has absorbed the water, it will be pliable and you can reshape as needed. Let dry for a day and it will hold its shape. We hope this helps! Just call Customer Care if you need any assistance.

When I saw these baskets, I knew they'd look great in my friend's living room, so she got the pair for her birthday. Beautiful!
