These hand woven African baskets are from Bolga in Northern Ghana. Traditionally used to carry goods, the Ghanaian bolga baskets are famous for their durability and long lasting quality. Made from dried elephant grass, dyed using a combination of natural occurring dyes from the earth and fabric dyes to achieve the vibrant colours and patterns recognisable throughout African culture.

Useful to use as storage baskets, Easter baskets, market baskets, fruit baskets, toy baskets, shopping baskets, picnic baskets, beach baskets – the uses are endless! 

Size - 22x15cm

These woven baskets may need to be reshaped after being in transit – see the care instructions for easy steps on how to do this.

RESHAPING YOUR BASKET

Baskets can get out of shape during their travels and this can be easily fixed:

  • Simply soak the basket in water for a few seconds. You will begin to feel that the grass becomes malleable and flexible.
  • While the basket is still damp you can reshape.
  • For best results, dry in natural sunlight but if weather does not permit then in front of a heater is your next best option.
