African Bolga Basket | Large Round | Navy & Natural Diamonds
Imagine your knitting project in this fabulous fair trade, stylish and sturdy Ghana Basket. This basket is one of Big Blue Moma's more popular styles. Its single handle and wide mouth make it a great market basket, magazine storage or fruit basket.
- Approximately 18 inches x 18 inches x 11 inches high (not including the handle).
- Handwoven in the Bolgatanga area of Ghana, West Africa.
- Handles are covered with goat leather, reinforcing its construction while also adding an extra level of comfort when carrying a full load.
The majority of African baskets are shipped flat and can be easily reshaped by submerging in water. Maintain your Ghana basket by submerging it fully once or twice a year to hydrate the grasses and tighten up the weave. To do this dip them in water and shape them with your hands. These baskets are a longstanding tradition in Ghana and you will be amazed at their durability as well as their stylish appearance.
All Big Blue Moma baskets are made by hand and as such, size and shape may vary slight from what is pictured.
