Purple and Red Pot Basket with Leather Handle from Ghana.
Pot baskets are exclusively woven in the Bolgatanga region in Northern Ghana. They are made from elephant grass, a tropical grass that grows in the African grasslands. Elephant grass is dyed, dried, twined and woven into a basket. Grass straws are carefully selected by the weaver before weaving. It takes 3 days to weave a pot basket. Due to the handcrafted nature, each basket of the same style may vary by a few inches.
This is a handwoven basket with natural, purple and red elephant grass. Basket measures 12" in height, 12" in diameter at the top and 16" in diameter at the bottom. This basket has a leather handle and measures 17" in length with upright handle. Add this large basket to any space to bring pattern detail. This is a handcrafted item, so product may vary slightly in color and craft from the images.
These baskets are made by artisans in Bolga, Ghana.
