As one of the most popular imported handicrafts, African baskets have become a favorite around the world. While beautifully crafted baskets are made throughout Africa, none compare to the quality, craftsmanship, and popularity of the baskets from the village region of Bolgatanga in Northern Ghana. For decades Ghanaian Kinkanhe Straw has been transformed into brilliant works of art by skilled artisans whose intricate weaving techniques have made "Bolga Baskets" a household name.
Good Wares 4 U Bolga Baskets are all completely hand-woven and come in as many unique sizes, colors and patterns as they have household uses. From a gardening partner to a grocery carrier, a picnic basket to the centerpiece of a fine living room, Bolga Baskets' uses are limited only by your imagination.
Good Wares 4 U firmly believes in fair trade principles that create environmentally conscious, community sustaining and economically advantaged conditions for all our employees and partners. Families of many generations participate in the communal effort of basket weaving.
Vegetable farmers by trade, who are basket weavers by tradition, create these beautiful baskets. The basket weaving is an important supplement to their income due to the fluctuating environmental conditions in the region which are not always a guarantee to the success of their farms.
By buying this basket you will help a family in Ghana build a better tomorrow.
