Fair Trade Cloth Handle Market Basket
This coral themed 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 Veta Vera (Elephant) grass with a cloth wrapped handle.
Dimensions: 16.5" wide x 9" deep, plus handles
