Fair Trade Leather Handle Market Basket

Sold Out

This colorful striped Bolga market basket gets its name from the region of Ghana where abundant veta vera grass is woven to create these hardy, useful African baskets. Genuine Bolga baskets are exclusively woven by the indigenous Gurune, also known as Frafra people, around the town of Bolgatanga in Northern Ghana. 

For many generations, weaving has been a traditional skill of the Gurune people of northern Ghana. Mostly done by women, basket weaving and other handicrafts supplement these subsistence farmers’ incomes. We thank you for your purchase!

This gorgeous basket is crafted from Leather and Veta Vera (Elephant) Grass.

Dimensions: 18.5" wide x 10.5" deep, plus handle

A portion of all sales are donated to help end violence against women. We sincerely thank you!
