Handmade Oversized Decorative Bolga Basket from Ghana, made from Elephant Grass, Fair Trade

$180.00


This oversized, decorative handwoven basket is made by Artisans in the Bolgatanga region of Ghana from natural strands of thick, tough elephant grass. 

Because this is a handcrafted item, each may vary slightly. 

* This basket's grass handle is beautiful and all-natural, but without leather binding, the handle cannot withstand carrying heavyweight. We recommend this basket be used for decorative purposes only.

Origin: Ghana

Size: 24"Dx 13"T (top of basket) , 16"T (to top of handle)

Materials:  Elephant Grass
