Large U-Shopper Basket - Leather Handles, Market Time
The perfect market basket! Its curved ends help this basket to hold a lot of goodies. Roughly 16" x 12".
A traditional handmade basket exclusively woven by the indigenous rural women of Bolgatanga, Ghana, Africa.
Known as the "Bolga Basket" it is the main source of income for these women who are marginalized socially and economically.
Made from an indigenous grass down as “elephant grass", the baskets can be reshaped by immersing them in cold or warm water, avoiding the leather handle as much as possible, then reshaped by forming them with the hand.
