Wiae Floor Basket - Blue + Green
Declutter and transform your space with the Wiae floor basket.
The beautiful tribal pattern, made with bold shades of green and blue, green are truly one of a kind: every round storage basket in this collection is totally unique – made once and sold once.
Fill them with kindling and logs, toys or rugs and throws. The handles mean they are easy to move and the wide width and shallow depth makes it easy to get to everything inside.
HANDMADE IN GHANA.

Each size of these unique, fair trade floor baskets take up to three days to weave by hand, using veta vera grass which produces baskets of excellent structural balance and durability. This indigenous grass is hand picked from the tip, hand-rolled and dyed in boiling water before being woven by a skilled member of our partner weaving cooperative in Northern Ghana.
Agricultural work is the mainstay of most of these Ghanaian weavers’ incomes, but the pervasive dry season makes it increasingly difficult for families to meet school fees and medical bills. Basket weaving brings opportunity to earn a flexible and valuable second income. Each small woven basket comes with a thank you card from the weaving cooperative that made yours.
