Our Bolga Pot baskets offer a different take on the traditional round baskets. Also handwoven in Ghana using ethically sourced Veta Vera grass which produces a hardy, stiff structure. The flexible handles are 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. Though the handles are not as strong as the more traditional looking Bolga baskets they are nonetheless ideal as plant pots or 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.
Basket sizes are all approximate (diameter at widest part x height)
