A collaboration between Artisans & Adventurers and Ghanaian weavers, discovered on co-founder Bee's recent trip to Ghana, these toilet roll holders are hand woven with hard wearing thick straw. The high quality of craftsmanship makes them a once in a lifetime purchase. They are a sustainable, environmentally friendly and aesthetically pleasing addition to any bathroom.
The sale of our Ghanaian baskets encourage the craft of basket weaving to continue being handed down from generation to generation and provides an alternative to poaching and farming during drought.
Please note, although much care is taken when making these styles- the pattern may vary from the toilet roll holder in photograph.
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.

Your product may arrive folded or slightly out of shape. When this occurs, Ghanaian toilet roll holders can be easily brought back to life with a quick steam using a steamer or steam setting on your iron. Steam the light shade and manually shape. Please be careful as the straw may be hot.
To clean, simply wipe clean with a damp cloth or sponge, remove most of the moisture with a dry towel and leave to air dry naturally.
Avoid placing in direct sunlight as this may cause some of the colours to fade.
