Extra Large Rainbow Basket from Ghana


A colorful and large basket made from 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 straws are carefully selected by the weaver before weaving. It takes 3 days to weave a 12" wide basket. 

To create these colorful rainbow baskets, artisans dye elephant grass strands in an array of colors before weaving. This large basket measures 15" in diameter and 15" in height. Basket has a handle made from natural grass.

This basket is made by artisans in Bolga, Ghana.
