Ideal for storage, carriage, or colorful decor, each handmade basket featuring soft neutrals and bold green makes an extraordinary impact. Women weavers in the Bolgatanga region of Ghana are earning a sustainable income as they craft these distinctive elephant grass baskets using traditional techniques, patterns, and colors. Due to handmade nature, size, shape, and color vary. Height listed includes leather-wrapped handle. Dimensions: 17"h x 11 1/2"dia.
Our current inventory of these one-of-a-kind baskets features a bright green color instead of the olive pictured.
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!
