These allnatural baskets are woven from elephant grass in Ghana. This tough fiber makes the baskets durable and allows them to be rinsed and re-shaped with water.
The baskets are ideal for storing any small item, and they are the perfect size for small hands. Each measures 5"x5".
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.
