The Uba Basket is a round woven basket without handles. These baskets are beautiful to use to store toys, or pop your favourite products inside and create a gorgeous natural gift basket!
Hand-woven from the elephant grass which grows in the rich flood plains of the White Volta near the village of Bolgatanga, Northern Ghana.
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.
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 adjust the basket into the desired shape and leave to dry.
