Handwoven + Unique + Versatile
These beautifully crafted, individually handwoven, one of a kind African Bolga Baskets come from the talented artisans of Bolgatanga, a town in the Upper East Region of Ghana.
The baskets are woven using sun-dried elephant grass, which grows abundantly in the Sub-Saharan region of Africa. The tough nature of the grass, together with the skilful weaving of the artisans, makes these unique & versatile keepsakes strong, durable and flexible.
The majority of the grass is hand-dyed using traditional natural dyes, derived from plants and minerals. To achieve contemporary colours, a non toxic fabric dye is used.
The handles are made from double woven 100% leather.
