Ghana Bolga Baskets & Totes

In the Bolgatanga region of Ghana, West Africa, artisans weave iconic storage baskets and shopping totes from natural grass. The durable baskets can even be rinsed with cool water and reshaped when needed.




These natural grass baskets are tightly woven by expert weavers in Ghana. A smaller version of our kettle basket, they feature a vibrant pink pattern (patterns vary), a pear-shaped bottom and a swing handle. 

Woven from sustainable and durable elephant grass, these indispensable baskets stand the test of time, even with daily use. The basket can also be rinsed with cool water and re-shaped, as needed.

Measures 8"D x 6"T (9" to top of handle). Due to the handcrafted nature of this item, patterns are varied and some variation is expected in size and coloration. See photos for examples.


A smaller version of our popular durable Bolga baskets, this basket is handwoven from thick, tough elephant grass and dyed a vivid red. This smaller size is beloved by children for carrying treasures! Pair with a stuffed animal for a delightful gift.

Measures approximately 8"D x 8"T. Includes a matching leather-wrapped handle. Due to the handmade nature of this basket, some variation in color, shape, and size are expected.


These sweet baskets are just the right size for children's hands to hold—perfect for an Easter basket! Baby Bolga baskets are woven in Ghana using natural elephant grass. Just like our larger Bolga baskets, this tough fiber makes the baskets extremely durable and water-resistant.
