Cinnamon Stick Bolga Basket with Leather Wrapped Handles

Swahili Modern


  • As perhaps the most iconic of handmade African baskets, Bolga baskets are loved and well-used in homes everywhere for storage and shopping. Handwoven out of stiff elephant grass, these eco-conscious and indispensable bags stand the test of time, even with daily use and provide comfort with leather wrapped straps. The bags can also be easily cleaned and re-shaped with water.

    Measures 15"D x 15"T. Slight variations may occur due to the handmade nature of this product.

  • Master weaver Tahiru owns a workshop in Bolga that is connected to his home. Having collaborated with high-end designers for a number of American companies, Tahiru is a skilled weaver who has taught both men and women to make bolga baskets of a truly exceptional quality. His generous spirit and talent has allowed many impoverished farmers in the area to attain a sustainable way of living.
