Set of Two Deep Wine Stripe
Elephant Grass Baskets

  • Discounted as a pair, these large nesting baskets from Ghana are handwoven using stiff stalks of elephant grass. Dyed strands add rich wine-brown coloration to each basket.

  • 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.
