HANDMADE IN GHANA.

NOTES

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.
