Grasslands Boat Basket
Perfect for storage, carriage, or colorful decor, this natural Bolga basket makes an extraordinary impact. In one of the most impoverished areas of Ghana, women weavers are earning a sustainable income as they craft these distinctive elephant grass baskets using traditional techniques, patterns, and colors. Size, shape, and color vary due to handmade nature. Leather-wrapped handle. Dimensions: 13 1/2″h x 11″dia; handles: 20″l.
Reshaping Your Bolgatanga Basket: Our artisan partners fold this basket in order to ship more efficiently. To remove creases and restore its shape, dampen basket with a spray bottle or other water source, or by submerging in water for 1 minute. Let it rest for 5 minutes to allow grass to absorb the moisture and become pliable. Bend and press the basket into shape – don’t worry, it won’t break. Allow it to air dry before use and enjoy your beautiful handwoven basket from Ghana!
