These beautifully made mini Bolga baskets are so incredibly versatile. They are useful for storing much loved toys in the play room, collecting treasures like leaves & shells, shopping in your play market, or simply filling up with goodies. They are most definitely a basket for everything.
This product is handmade. Elephant grass grows surrounding waterholes in the Sahel region of West Africa. The strong slender leaves are harvested seasonally by th Fra Fra people in Northern Ghana, then soaked and stretched to produce a fine, supple, and extra strong fibre.
Your purchase of this item helps to maintain the time honoured craft of weaving, while continuing a long-existing fair trade relationship with these people.
Baskets measure approximately 18cm- 20cm, with slight variations due to their handmade nature.
Fully malleable and easy to reshape, simply immerse in water for a few minutes and adjust while wet. We include a care and shaping guide to keep your basket looking its best.
