GH80C-small

In Ghana's northern Bolgatanga region, talented basket weavers know exactly what to do to transform a stiff stalk of grass grown in the south into gorgeous baskets loved around the world. These simplified baskets offer the ample round Bolga market basket in a useful handle-free variation.

Sold singly; available in two sizes. Because these are handcrafted items, each will vary slightly.

NOTE: We ship Bolga baskets in two ways. We can fit more FLATTENED baskets into a box, saving you on shipping costs. Or, we can SHAPE your baskets before they ship. If you do not indicate during checkout that you wish for us to SHAPE your baskets, they will arrive flattened. You can shape your basket by wetting the straw and shaping the basket with your hands, then allowing it to dry.

Dimensions:
Small: 11-12"L x 11-12"W x 5-6"H
Large: 12-13"L x 12-13"W x 7-8"H
Sizes will vary, but baskets will nest.

Crafted from:  Elephant grass

Made in: Ghana

Bolga Baskets Ship Flattened

Shaping Bolga Baskets

Bolga baskets ship flattened to save you money on shipping! Four to five compressed baskets take up the same amount of shipping space as a single shaped basket. 

We'll send basket shaping instructions in the box along with your order. Shaping your baskets is simple. Spray the basket lightly with cool water, focusing on any creased areas. Allow the water to absorb into the fibers for a few minutes, then press the basket into shape. Air dry and you're all done!

Bolga baskets can be reshaped any time it's needed.
If you'd prefer to receive your Bolga baskets already shaped, please let us know in the order notes.
