The basket weavers from the Bolgatonga region of Ghana, create a mixture of patterns and colors by twisting and weaving elephant grass into these sturdy baskets with a leather-wrapped handle. Your basket will be shipped flattened, the same way it comes from Ghana, with instructions on how to reshape it. Note that shipping it fully shaped (as shown in the photo) would cause shipping to be very expensive. Your basket will be the same style and look very similar to the photo, but may not be identical - with hand-crafted items, no two are exactly alike. Use as a shopping basket or decorative container for magazines or towels or what-not.
Our local African partner and friend purchases handcrafted products directly from African artisans at fair prices, and uses the principles of Fair Trade, sharing the strong belief that indigenous people around the world should be compensated fairly for their amazing work. Your purchase directly contributes to the African artisans and their families. Most use the money they earn for basic needs such as food, clothing, housing, and medical services. Your purchase is important-1/2 of Africans live on less than a dollar a day. Not only do you get a unique and handcrafted product, but you are also helping a country and their people climb out of poverty.
