Our traditional Bolga market baskets are handwoven in Ghana using ethically sourced Veta Vera grass which produces a hardy, stiff structure. The handles are strong and finished in soft goat’s leather. Natural dyes are used to create the striking varied colours. These beautiful baskets are extremely versatile and can be used for decorative or functional purposes. Perfect for supermarket shopping, farmer’s markets, picnics or for stylish storage options around the home.
Each basket takes approximately 3 days to make. Due to the handmade nature of the items there may be slight variances in pattern, colour and size making each one unique. The leather handles may also vary slightly within their colour range.
If your basket becomes misshaped simply wet it, leave it for 5 minutes, re-mould using your hands. Leave to dry fully.
