Ghanaian Basket no. 171 'Monochrome with Natural Band'

Sourced on co-founder Bee's recent trip to Ghana, these baskets are hand woven with hard wearing thick straw. 

This basket is handmade using natural dyes and traditional weaving techniques.

The sale of our baskets encourages the craft of basket weaving to continue being handed down from generation to generation and provides an alternative to poaching and farming during drought.

ARTISANS & VALUES

Our woven baskets and fans from Ghana are made by a talented group of artisans based in the Upper East Region, under the Burkina Fasso border. The baskets are made with indigenous veta vera which grows abundantly in this hot, dry area.

The co-operative we have partnered with is led by Agana who works very close with the weavers.
