The Bolga basket is an iconic African design, handmade from elephant grass by artisan weavers in Bolgatanga, Ghana, and crafted with soft goatskin binding the handle to make it stronger.
Measures 16 1/2" tall (including 6 1/2" tall handles) with a circular diameter of 15". Basket depth is 10".
Swahili African Modern works with artisans in rural parts of Bolgatanga, Ghana to create beautifully handcrafted items like this basket out of local elephant grass which is dried into straw, hand-dyed, and woven using traditional basketweaving techniques.
Please note the basket will be shipped to you flattened so you will need to reshape it - this can be easily done by wetting the basket and molding it to the shape you desire!
