This basket is a beautiful alternative to our Shoppers – adding a tapered look to the body of the basket.

Our products from Ghana are woven from elephant grass, a completely sustainable material grown in the country.  The dyes are primarily plant dyes such as sorghum.  By twisting the grass, these baskets are extremely strong.  The handles are made of straw and wrapped with goat leather.  The average time to weave a basket is about two and a half days.

These are handcrafted items so sizes are approximate and colors and patterns will vary.

Height does not include the handle.
