Small Natural and Dark Green Pot Basket from Ghana


Small Natural and Dark Green Pot Basket with Leather Handle.

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 basket is handwoven with natural, dark green and red elephant grass. Basket measures 6" in height and 9" in diameter. This basket has a leather handle and measures 10" in length with upright handle. Hide your keys, cards and glasses at your entryway in this beautiful handcrafted basket. 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.
