Baby Changing Bilia Basket

Swahili Modern


  • Handwoven from durable elephant with leather-wrapped carry handles, this shallow basket creates a cozy space for your little one's diapers and clothes to be changed. A fresh, stylish take on the traditional changing table or mat for the nursery, it can also be used for storing toys, books, and more after your little one has outgrown it. "Bilia" baskets (which means newborn in FraFra, one of the languages of the people in Ghana) are handcrafted by Ghanaian weavers.

    Size: 28"-30"L x 15"-16"W x 4"T, although it may vary slightly due to the handcrafted nature of this basket.

    CAUTION: Baby should not be left unattended on dresser/table top or basket placed on slippery surfaces. Although very sturdy, this is not a carrying device, and babies must be carried separately from the basket when being moved.

  • 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.
