One of our most popular and versatile bolga baskets is now available in Vegan, using the same time honoured weaving traditions.
The vegan oval basket is great as a market or shopping basket, as well as being a perfect storage basket for the home, beach or garden. Their compact narrower oval shape makes them fit into tight spaces and they’re also suited to laptops and office documents. The oval bolga basket is woven in a “single weave” style making them quite rigid and sturdy. They are a medium to large bolga basket, available in a range of vibrant colours including natural.
Our Oval Baskets are hand-woven from the sustainably sourced elephant grass that grows in the rich flood plains around the village of Bolgatanga in Ghana, West Africa. The soft malleable grass is 100% locally sourced and the dyes we use to colour the baskets are 100% non toxic. We have been working with the local weaving community for 2 decades and support several families in their artistic weaving tradition.
