Made in Bolga from elephant grass straw also known as Veta Vera. Each grass is split  in two, then twisted for strength and durability. Using batik dye the grass is then steeped in boiling water to obtain its vibrancy. Each basket takes approximately 5 days to complete.

If re-shaping is needed, simply dip in cold water, let the basket rest for 5 minutes to become pliable , then bend and reshape as desired.

Size: 16"W x 8.5"H

The origin of the Bolga basket is from Ghana's north region. Basket weaving became a means to supplement income for the livelihood of the people of Bolgatanga.The handles in goat skin are a signature detail for these baskets. The approx. time to weave and dye and prepare these baskets is approximately 4 to 5 days. Truly a gift from the earth.
