This basket is slightly wider and more roomy with its tulip shape compared to the typical bola tote. These baskets work great for taking to the garden or farmer's market. They also keep magazines and library books neat and tidy. I even like to keep one in the car in order to avoid using plastic bags when out and about.
They are skillfully made using "elephant grass" that grows along the river in Bolgatanga, Ghana. The leather, which covers the handles is made of goat's skin that was tanned using seeds local to the area and red millet. You can feel good about this purchase because it helps provide healthcare and school supplies in support of the weavers, their families, and villages in Ghana, West Africa.
Each basket is one of a kind.
They will be shipped flattened. However, they are super easy to reshape by simply wetting them with a little water and reshaping them!
