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.

The basket from Ghana was a gift for my partner, who uses it daily and loves it!!

The color is a true indigo, very dark blue but definetely not black as described in an earlier review. The handle, however, is covered in a saddle colored leather not the blue as indicated in the photo. It makes a nice contrast. Gets squished in shipping so you have to wet a little and reshape. Great price, especially compared to baskets sold at NYC street fares.

I love this basket. I bought one similar a while back from SERRV and this one is even roomier.

This is a beautiful, well-made basket, larger than I'd anticipated, but wonderful nonetheless. The only thing I would warn you about is that the navy blue on it is so dark it looks black, a common problem with the color. The photo of it clearly shows navy, but in person it doesn't look that way.
