Ideal for storage, carriage, or colorful decor, this miniature woven basket in our popular grasslands pattern is crafted by women weavers in the Bolgatanga region of Ghana earning a sustainable income. Each one is made from natural elephant grass dyed and woven using traditional techniques, patterns, and colors. Makes a great do-it-yourself gift basket! Due to handmade nature, size, shape, and color vary. Dimensions: 6"h x 9"dia
Reshaping Your Bolgatanga Basket: Our artisan partners fold this basket in order to ship more efficiently. To remove creases and restore its shape, dampen basket with a spray bottle or other water source, or by submerging in water for 1 minute. Let it rest for 5 minutes to allow grass to absorb the moisture and become pliable. Bend and press the basket into shape - don't worry, it won't break. Allow it to air dry before use and enjoy your beautiful handwoven basket from Ghana!
