Multicolored Fruit Basket from Ghana


Multicolored Fruit Basket from Ghana.

A wide and shallow basket handwoven from multi colored elephant grass. Basket measures 4" in height and 15" in diameter. Wipe with a damp cloth to clean. Place the basket as a centerpiece bowl or use for storage. 

Elephant grass baskets are exclusively handwoven in the Bolgatanga region in Northern Ghana. 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 pot basket and longer for very detailed patterns. Due to the handcrafted nature of these baskets, baskets of the same style may also vary by few inches. This product may also vary slightly in color and craft from the images.

This product is made in Bolga, Ghana.
