Our genuine Bolga baskets are exclusively woven by the indigenous Frafra people of Bolgatanga in Northern Ghana. For many generations, weaving has been a traditional skill. Elephant grass, which grows in abundance in this region, is harvested seasonally, prepared to produce a strong fibre that is dyed using traditional plant and non-toxic fabric dyes to produce an array of vibrant colours. Our baskets are double woven to produce strong, flexible and durable products. Click below for further information on the materials used and how our Bolga baskets are made.About Bolga Baskets

Baskets can get out of shape during their travels and this can be easily fixed. Simply soak the basket in water and reshape while the basket is damp. Dry in natural sunlight.Care Instructions

Introducing our new flat style of Baby Moses Basket. A break away from the traditional Moses Basket shape, the Flat Basket is a more streamlined look that suits the minimalist. Made the exact same way as our traditional Baby Moses Baskets, using the same natural materials provided by the earth without any chemically laden materials, particularly important to avoid for newborns. The flat style is completely versatile and will have many great uses well after Baby has outgrown it.
Baby Moses Baskets not only look great in the baby nursery but serve a practical purpose too. Baby Moses Baskets are ideal for a newborn baby as they are cosy and the lightweight portability of the basket makes it easy to keep baby close to you wherever you are in your house. If you need to travel while baby is young, the baby baskets are easy to transport with you to your accommodation unlike a bulky and heavy portable cot. The Moses Baskets continue to be useful long after baby outgrows them. They can be used for toy storage or a pet’s bed.
