Artisans in the Bolgatanga region of Ghana weave these beautiful and durable baskets from thick, tough elephant grass. Bolga baskets stand up to use and abuse and remain functional and beautiful for years. This basket features an ample kettle shape and an all natural fiber handle.
Please note, Bolga baskets are typically crafted with soft goatskin binding the handles. Without leather binding, handles are not as strong.
NOTE: We ship Bolga baskets in two ways. We can fit more FLATTENED bolga 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.
