Kusi Patterned Bolga Shopping Basket
Make an ethical, stylish statement with this Ghanaian patterned bolga shopping basket by The Basket Room. Boasting a bold jagged striped design against a natural grass base and black carry handles, this is the perfect accessory for market trips and days out.
Made from indigenous Veta Vera Grass – which produces wonderfully balanced and sturdy basketry – the preparation process is lengthy. Grass is harvested, split, hand-rolled and dyed in boiling water before a skilled weaver from our partner weaving cooperative in Northern Ghana sets to work.
The Basket Room is Fairtrade brand, working with small craft collectives in Africa. We are proud to support the weavers in a truly fair trade, supplying a supplementary source of income to help sustain farming communities whose primary income can be unreliable.
