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

About Bolga Baskets

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.
