Talented weavers in Bolgatanga, Ghana, turn stiff stalks of elephant grass into these beautiful works of functional art. This basket features interwoven triangles and diamonds of retro-inspired yellow, orange, and brown.

Measures approximately 15"D x 15"T. Due to the handmade nature of this basket, some variations in color, patterning, and size are expected. Can be rinsed and reshaped with cool water as needed.

NOTE: In response to requests for bolga baskets with less leather, we now offer many baskets without goatskin-wrapped handles! This basket is reinforced with a small amount of leather at each end of the handle, and the rest of the handle is natural grass. Grass handled baskets like this one are best used for display or decor. Please consider reinforcing the handle if you choose to use it for heavy carrying.
