Discounted as a pair, these large African baskets are woven in Ghana using elephant grass and are finished with soft leather around the handles. The baskets are tightly woven and can stand up to years of usage while still remaining beautiful.
Large measures 20"H x 17"D and Small measures 19"H X 16"D; size may vary slightly.
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 Bolga baskets sold by Swahili Modern are Fair Trade and are a reliable source of income for women weavers and their families.
