  • These natural "bolga" hats are handwoven in Ghana using elephant grass. The tight knit of the grass offers excellent protection from the sun.

    Measures 11-12"D. Size may vary slightly. Fair trade.

  • 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.
