Ghanaian Bolga Basket with Leather Handles - #1
The Bolga basket is a traditional, handmade product from Ghana.
They are made from elephant grass that is both flexible and sturdy. Making one basket takes almost a whole week. Every basket has a piece of Ghanaian heart and soul.
Size: Ø 38/40cm x H. 25cm (39cm to top of handle), with slight variations from basket to basket due to their unique hand-woven nature.
Color: Naturel, colors may vary slightly from photos.
Material: Elephant grass.
Care: Basket can be wiped or rinsed with water – do not get water on the leather. If the basket is misshaped: (1) Run under cold water (except for the leather handles) for about 60 seconds. (2) Let the basket sit for 5 minutes to allow water to suck in the straw. (3) Gently reshape the basket. (4) Allow to fully dry, undisturbed, in an airy place. Due to natural nature of basket it can mold if left wet.
Handmade in Ghana.
