Set of Dark Green Pot Baskets from Ghana


Set of Dark Green Pot Baskets from Ghana.

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. 

A set of small and large dark green baskets with leather handles. Small basket measures 6" in height, 9" in diameter and 10" in length with upright leather handle. Large basket measures 10" in height, 10" in diameter at the top, 15" in diameter at the bottom and 15" in length with upright leather handle. This is a handcrafted item, so product may vary slightly in color and craft from the images.
