Summer is here! Farmers markets, parks and pools await you. Shop the market with Fairly Traded Harvest Shoppers Baskets, pack your picnics in African Bolga Baskets and put kids snacks in a small Bolga Basket. These beautiful hand-woven African Baskets are all natural, made from the local ‘elephant grass’. The grass grows wild and is harvested, dried into straw and then woven by the women of the village. The men tan the goat hides and work the leather onto the handles. They are made in the historic village of Bolgatanga, Ghana, Africa. The artisans are mainly farm families who supplement their income by making and selling baskets.
Shaping Tip: To re-shape and strengthen your African Basket first, wet baskets with lukewarm water. Then, shape basket with hands. Finally, set basket upside down and let dry.
Hanging out pool side or jumping in the water, you will want to carry your pool necessities easily. African Bolga Baskets are perfect for towels, water bottles, and sunscreen.
Pack the kids lunches in these small African Baskets.
Use an African Bolga Basket to keep dog toys neatly off the floor.
