Shoulder Shopper | Large | Orange & Navy Checks
This two handled basket was designed for the western market and is considered in Ghana to be a more modern style of Bolga basket. It is a perfect market basket with a wide mouth and deep bottom, it holds-well-a lot of stuff!
- Approximately 13 inches at it's tallest and approximately 18 inches at it's widest (really, we mean approximately).
- Handwoven in the Bolgatanga area of Ghana, West Africa.
- The elephant grass is dyed in rustic pots over a wood burning fire.
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.
