Oversize Natural Bolga Basket from Ghana

Swahili Modern


  • Flattering in any home, this large basket is handwoven in Ghana using tough, un-dyed elephant grass. Each basket includes a handle for easy transport.

    The baskets can be wet with water to wash or reshape, and are designed to last for decades because of their tight weave and material. Measures 16"T x 24"D.

  • 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.
