These durable, natural totes are handwoven in Ghana using tough elephant grass. The totes have been dyed with non-coated plant dyes and feature soft leather-wrapped handles for comfort.
The totes are tightly woven and can stand up to years of usage while still remaining beautiful. This particular design is new and unique to Swahili Modern in 2016.
Measures 16"L x 8"W x 18"T.
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.
