Large Round Fruit Basket from Ghana


This is a wide and shallow basket in multi colored elephant grass. Elephant grass is a tropical grass that grows in the African grasslands. Elephant grass is dyed, dried, twined and woven into a basket. Grass staws are carefully selected by the weaver before weaving. It takes 3 days to weave a medium size basket. These baskets are exclusively woven in the Bolgatanga region.

Place the basket as a centerpiece bowl or use for storage. Basket measures 4" in height and 14 3/4" in diameter. Wipe with a damp cloth to clean. This is a handcrafted item, so product may vary slightly in color and craft from the images.

This product is made in Bolga, Ghana.
