Bolga Carrying Basket


Carry farmer’s market finds, park toys, knitting supplies or even a small picnic spread in this sunshine-inspired Bolga basket. Each is handmade by skilled weavers in the Bolgatanga region of northern Ghana, Western Africa. Using local natural and dyed elephant grass, the women also braid the basket handles to make them strong and very durable. Soiled baskets can even be hosed down and dried in the sun. Wet the basket about once a year to hydrate the straw and keep it supple.
