Black Color Block Market Basket with Leather Handles from Ghana.

Handwoven baskets from Ghana are exclusively made in the Bolgatanga region in Northern Ghana. Baskets 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 basket. Due to the handcrafted nature, each basket of the same style may vary by a few inches.

This market basket is woven from natural elephant grass and black dyed elephant grass to create a modern color block design. The handles of the basket are made from natural leather. Basket measures 11" in length, 8" in width and 18.5" in height. This basket has a unique design of extended sides to support extra storage. Use basket for storing throws or for shopping vegetables at your farmer's market. This is a handcrafted item, so product may vary slightly in color and craft from the images. 

This basket is hand woven by artisans in Ghana.
