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.
