Impeccable Totes in Fun Assorted Colors and Patterns

  • Ghanaian totes woven from elephant grass are always a popular choice for conscious shoppers, both practical and chic! Since these are handcrafted, each bag will vary in its colors and patterns. Soft, tan leather-wrapped handles complete the look.

    The totes are tightly woven and can stand up to years of usage while still remaining beautiful. 

    Measures 16"L x 7"W x 18"T.

  • The weaving of "market baskets" in Ghana has been a traditional skill for many generations. Because the soil around Bolgatanga is not fertile enough to sustain agriculture, the people of the region rely upon handicraft products to supplement their income. The baskets sold by Swahili Modern are Fair Trade and are a reliable source of income for women weavers and their families.
