    Product description

    A handwoven shopping basket with leather bound carry handles and open weave design - ethically produced in Northern Ghana by cooperative weavers.

    Cut your use of plastic bags and make a style statement to boot with this natural bolga market basket. Take yours to the shops, the flower market, on picnics and on holiday - it's also sturdy enough to carry small logs and kindling!

    Each one of these shopping baskets are woven from sturdy veta vera grass, which is hand-picked and hand-rolled before being woven over the course of three days. This beautiful bolga basket is finished with a binding of buttery soft goat’s leather around the handles in a simple nude colour.

    Agriculture is the main source of work for most of these weavers, but drought across Africa makes it very difficult for families to meet school fees and medical bills. The age-old craft of basket weaving brings the opportunity to earn a fair and flexible second income, particularly during the dry seasons.
