These artisans transform this tough elephant grass into iconic baskets by starting to weave a small woven circle and expand to reveal our beautiful authentic Bolga baskets.
The weaving of Bolga Baskets in Ghana has been a traditional skill passed on for many generations. The basket weavers and their familes rely on the sale of these handcrafted baskets to supplement their income.
Each luscious curve is the handprint or signature of the weaver who has expertly handcrafted your basket, and we celebrate the unique differences in each and every piece. In addition to being a popular choice for eco-conscious shopping, the lace weave of this tote makes it a stylish accessory. This is a wonderful fair trade gift!
