A cute mini version of the classic African market basket is just perfect for children or for carrying light and small items.
Hand-woven from the elephant grass which grows in the rich flood plains of the White Volta near the village of Bolgatanga, Northern Ghana and made with durable leather handles.
Each basket is individually hand woven by creative weavers in Ghana. The raw elephant grass is a 100% sustainable natural material, which is harvested and dried. The weavers split each length into two then roll it to give it more strength. Each weaver has their own special techniques. Baskets may take 3 days to one week to make depending on the size.
Dimensions: 19cm x 21 cm (width x height) – height excludes handle
Ethically imported to support and empower local West African artisans and weavers.
Care instructions: If your basket needs reshaping simply immerse the basket in water for a few minutes, shake off the excess water then gently form the basket into the desired shape and leave to dry.
