These delicately textured and woven baskets were made by groups of women across Ghana in an ethical, fair trade environment. They hand weave raffia to achieve these incredible pieces of art.

The material used for weaving in Bolgatanga is elephant grass, this grass is only available in the southern part of Ghana, Kumasi to be precise. The grasses are harvested and dried up, a process that might take up to three (3) days. It is then tied together in big bundles and transported to the Bolga markets. This is where most of the weavers buy their raw materials. The straw grass is further processed before weaving begins.

  • Straw is collected and split then rolled/twisted for texture. 
  • Straw is dyed to give a vibrant color before weaving begins.
  • Approximately 18.5” D x 18.5” H
  • Fair Trade, Nest Seal of Transparency
  • Made in Ghana
  • Products are made from Elephant Grass
  • Organic dyes are used to dye the grass
  • profile weaver tag is attached to each product

*All products are made by hand with love and vary slightly in color and size.

Made in an ethical, fair trade environment. Handwoven by a cooperative of women located in rural Ghana, this one-of-a-kind piece takes a day to complete.
