large bolga floor basket
Woven from elephant grass by the hands of artisans in the Bolgatanga region of Ghana, these baskets prove their worth in their strength and durability, as well as their beauty. These baskets are all the storage you’d need for toys, blankets, shoes and much more!
Swahili Modern is a fair-trade company that partners with local artisans in multiple African countries to create beautiful and traditional woven baskets.
As each basket is handwoven by individuals, there will be variations from basket to basket. The product image gives an idea of what the basket will look like, but no two baskets will be exactly the same. Handles will vary in style and size and baskets may be larger or smaller, or taller or shorter than pictured.
These baskets packed down to allow for more economic shipping.
Thoroughly wet the basket with cold water (to prevent the dye from bleeding). Press and smooth the basket to the desired shape. Shake out excess water, then set in a warm place to dry. Do not place a wet basket on a surface onto which the dye may transfer. Repeat as needed.
