These colorful 8"x 8" baskets are just the right size for kids' hands to hold. Baby Bolga baskets are woven in Ghana using elephant grass. Just like our larger Bolga baskets, the tough, natural fiber makes the baskets durable and water-resistant. Just wet with cool water and reshape as needed, then air dry.
This basket style is a mix of purples and blues, but designs are assorted—see photos for examples of the variety. Each basket is handmade and unique. Each basket is finished a leather-wrapped handle in black and/or brown leather.
Artisans in the Bolgatanga region of Ghana weave these useful and durable baskets from sturdy elephant grass, creating bright patterns as they weave. Bolga baskets stand up to any task while remaining functional and beautiful for years. Our new oval shape makes a perfect basket for harvesting fruit, vegetables, or flowers.
Each basket is finished with a leather wrapped handle.
Photos are representative of the general colorway and design, with orange, green, and some accents of blue or berry colors. Because they are handmade, each basket will be unique. [Click to read our Statement on Handmade Variation]
Baskets measure approximately 16" long x 8" wide x 7" tall (to top of basket); 12" tall (to top of handle). Size may vary slightly due to the handmade nature of this product.
