This beautiful basket is perfect for garden work or shopping at the farmer's market! Features light tan leather bound handles and lace basketweave detail. Measures 20" from wing to wing, 18 1/4" to top of handle (handles are 7 1/4" tall), and 9" at widest point.
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!
When you purchase this item, 10% of proceeds will go towards an organization fighting for food justice in the Los Angeles area. If you are interested in learning more about these organizations, please check out the blog section!
