Baby Doll Bilia Bassinet

Swahili Modern


  • This adorable doll bassinet for your "little mama or daddy" is handwoven from durable stalks of elephant grass and comes with comfortable leather-wrapped carry handles for those small hands. Imagine their delight as they put their baby dolls or stuffed animals to bed. "Bilia" baskets (which means newborn in FraFra, one of the languages of the people in Ghana) are handcrafted by Ghanaian weavers.

    Size: 21"L x 13"W x 8"T (to top of basket), 14"T (to top of handles), although it may vary slightly due to the handcrafted nature of the basket.

  • 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.
