Boat Basket | Savannah Earth

  • $ 7400

Our fair trade Savannah Earth Boat Basket has a roomy design and is perfect for carrying produce and more, storage, or as colorful decor. The vibrant colors of this natural Bolga basket are eye catching. They are called Bolga baskets because of the region where they are crafted - Bolgatanga in northern Ghana. The bright colors and boat-shaped design give this basket its distinct African flair! 

Each beautiful and unique basket is hand woven with elephant grass by talented women artisans in Ghana using traditional techniques, colors, and patterns. Please note that the size, shape, and color may vary due to handmade nature.

Dimensions: Approximately. 18"h x 16"dia

Reshaping Your Bolgatanga Basket: Our artisan partners fold this basket in order to ship more efficiently. To remove creases and restore its shape, dampen basket with a spray bottle or other water source, or by submerging in water for 1 minute. Let it rest for 5 minutes to allow grass to absorb the moisture and become pliable. Bend and press the basket into shape - don't worry, it won't break. Allow it to air dry before use and enjoy your beautiful handwoven basket from Ghana!

Your purchase supports the indigenous livelihoods of Ghana's poorest residents, empowering them to earn a sustainable income through entrepreneurship and export of their crafts.
