Details

This colorful and handwoven decorative basket 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 may vary. Grass handle. Dimensions: Approx. 17 1/2"h x 12"dia.

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!

...not normally, anyway, but this basket deserves a few words. It's absolutely beautiful. The colors are more vibrant than the photo is able to capture. The few wrinkles from shipping disappeared quickly with a few squeezes of my kitchen sprayer. And it's huge! Great for storage or farmers market. It warms my heart to think of of the artisan who fashioned it.

Beautiful baskets!

I received these beautiful baskets as a present to myself. They arrived just as beautiful as pictured on the web site. I was thinking they would be useful for holding quilting projects or crochet projects. They are so beautiful, I may, instead, use them for other things as well.

I love these baskets with the swinging handle! SO COLORFUL TOO

I really use these baskets for so many things. They are great for trips, storing books and toys, packing food and they look amazing in any room. I love the 'swinging" handle because it makes it easier to load the basket with large items and to carry it.
