Our 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. Each colourful woven basket is a unique, one of a kind design and finished with a leather trim on the handles.
We have 3 sizes available, see the full range of African baskets here:

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